Governments should invest now to cut the cost of air carbon capture
Capturing carbon from the air could cost six times more than hoped, according to a new report published
in the journal One Earth
 
Leaders - CCUS in Canada
 
Canada’s Clean Economy Plan - welcome but industry must not wait
Canadian businesses should not be idle while the government sets out a timeline for
its legislative policy to incentivise CCUS investment through the tax system . . . . . . . .
CCS is needed and ready to address climate change - open letter
The International CCS Knowledge Centre sent the letter to government leaders in the
United Kingdom, United States and Canada stressing the importance of CCS . . . . . . .
Cash flow modeling shows CCS can help meet climate goals
In collaboration with the Canadian Climate Institute, analysts at the Pembina Institute
developed a model to assess the economic viability of projects in Alberta’s oilsands . . .
Heidelberg Materials and MHI cement CO2 capture demo in Alberta
Through a partnership with the government, the facility is expected to become the first
full-scale CCUS solution for the cement industry . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Oxy acquires British Colombia based Carbon Engineering for $1.1 billion
Occidental has been working with Carbon Engineering on direct air capture deployment
since 2019. They recently broke ground on the STRATOS facility in Texas
 
Projects and policy
 
CCS in Europe: challenges and opportunities
The message is simple: there will be no net-zero without CCS, but policymakers need
to be reminded that CCS is critically important if we want the potential to be realised
in time. By Chris Davies, Director of CCS Europe
 
Towards Net Zero: convergence of CCS, H2, renewables and digitalisation
For companies to achieve Net Zero goals at the speed and scale required, a “born
digital” approach will be essential. By Ron Beck, Senior Director, AspenTech
 
The Storing ’20s: can the UK realise its offshore CCS ambitions?
What needs to happen if we really are to mark this decade as ‘the Storing ’20s’? By
Ben Cannell, Innovation Director, Aquaterra Energy
 
Cost-effective carbon capture for hard to abate industries with membranes
Compact Membrane Systems’ Optiperm™ membrane technology can provide a high
flow of gas at low pressure, enabling a fully engineered capture cost under $50 per ton
 
CO2 reduction via biomass conversion in energy and chemicals
The report provides an overview of a range of products / applications and reviews
emissions and costs compared to their fossil benchmarks
 
Capture and utilisation
 
Oxy-fuel combustion for CO2 capture from thermal power generation
In the Allam-Fetvedt cycle CO2 capture is integrated into the process, providing a pure
high pressure CO2 stream at high efficiency. By Stephen B. Harrison, sbh4 consulting
 
Researchers develop a gel film to capture CO2 with reduced energy
A gel developed at MIT made from commercially available materials and with a low
regeneration energy could offer a low cost carbon capture method
 
Transport and storage
 
Monitoring CO2 storage integrity and ensuring it stays there
The best way to be re-assured of CO2 storage integrity is probably 4D seismic – but it
needs to be done differently to exploration 4D to keep the costs manageable
 
Transporting frozen CO2 by box container - seeking research partners
Henrik O Madsen, former CEO of DNV, is seeking partners for a Euro 2m project to
assess the transport of CO2 in frozen, pelletised form in box containers. By Karl Jeffery
 
Licence awards for UK Poseidon and Orion CCS projects
Perenco UK and partner Carbon Catalyst Ltd have been awarded licences to progress the
North Sea projects
 
Sandia successfully tests heat-powered system to monitor CO2 storage
Researchers designed, built and lab-tested a device that can use the temperature
difference caused by pumping carbon dioxide down a borehole to charge batteries
 
'World-class' study highlights CCUS potential for North Sea 'super basin'
A research study led by the University of Aberdeen has identified areas of a North Sea
gas 'super basin' with the greatest potential for storing industrial carbon emissions
