Welcome to NETL's Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Database. The database includes active, proposed, canceled, and terminated CCS projects worldwide. Information in the database regarding technologies being developed for capture, evaluation of sites for carbon dioxide (CO2) storage, estimation of project costs, and anticipated dates of completion is sourced from publically available information. The CCS Database provides the public with information regarding efforts by various industries, public groups, and governments towards development and eventual deployment of CCS technology. As of April 2011, the database contained 254 CCS projects worldwide. The 254 projects include 65 capture, 61 storage, and 128 for capture and storage in more than 27 countries across 6 continents. While most of the projects are still in the planning and development stage, or have recently been proposed, 20 are actively capturing and injecting CO2.
Access to the database requires use of Google Earth. The NETL CCS database is a layer in Google Earth. Free downloadable software for Google Earth is available at http://earth.google.com/.
