What is the CO2 Capture Project?
The CO2 Capture Project (CCP) is an award-winning partnership of seven major energy companies working to advance the CO2 Capture and Storage technologies that will underpin the deployment of industrial-scale CO2 Capture and Storage.
Since its formation in 2000, the CCP has undertaken more than 150 projects to increase the science, economics and engineering applications of CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS). The group has been working closely with government organizations - including the US Department of Energy, the European Commission and more than 60 academic bodies and global research institutes.
The CCP has completed the second of three phases and has now embarked upon the third phase of its crucial work to develop and test next generation CO2 Capture and Storage technologies. The insights of this work are critical in helping to reduce or eliminate CO2 emissions associated with ongoing use of fossil fuels. During the second phase of its work (Phase Two - 2004-2009), CO2 Capture and Storage moved from a theoretical construct to market ready. CO2 Capture and Storage is now accepted as an appropriate emissions reduction technology to help address the challenge of reducing CO2 emissions while the world develops alternative energy sources. Over the last ten years, CCP has done more than any other single industry body to advance the science of CO2 Capture and Storage.
