- The CCP has launched the CCS Browser to help the public learn more about CO2 capture and storage
- The main focus of the CCS Browser is on storage, with detailed animations used to explain areas such as geological trapping
- Available on tablet, PC and mobile, the CCS Browser allows people to explore in the way best suited to them
- Digital In Depth tool now available - CO2 Capture Project Phase Three
CCP (CO2 Capture Project) is a group of major energy companies working together to advance the technologies that will underpin the deployment of industrial-scale CO2 capture and storage (CCS) in the oil & gas industry.
Since its formation in 2000, CCP has undertaken more than 150 projects to increase understanding of the science, economics and engineering applications for CO2 capture and storage in the industry. The insights from this work are critical in helping to reduce or eliminate CO2 emissions associated with ongoing use of fossil fuels.
CCP is currently in its fourth phase of its work, CCP4. To find out more about this current phase of work and previous CCP activity, click here.
Update on the Svante CO2MENT project
CCP is currently participating in the CO2MENT project with a goal to demonstrate Svante's innovative adsorption-based carbon dioxide (CO2) capture system on Lafarge Canada's Richmond cement plant at a pilot scale of 1 tonne per day. The project met the CO2 capture key performance indicators, specifically: CO2 purity > 95% and productivity > 8 Tonnes CO2/m3 bed/Day. A new waste heat recovery cycle design was tested to reduce the plant steam consumption and overall steam ratio. Results of the project will be available in the next CCP results book.
