Carbon Capture and Storage Database

Welcome to the National Energy Technology Laboratory’s (NETL) Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Database, which includes information on active, proposed, and terminated CCS projects worldwide. 

Publicly available information has been aggregated to provide a one-stop interactive tool that contains valuable data, including, but not limited to:

  • Technologies being developed for capture.
  • Evaluation of sites for carbon dioxide (CO2) storage.
  • An estimation of project costs.
  • Project description and current status.
  • Amount of CO2 captured/stored.

NETL’s CCS Database provides the public with information regarding efforts by various industries, public groups, and governments that are being made towards development and eventual deployment of CCS technology. As of April 2018, the database contained 305 total CCS projects worldwide, with 299 sites identified. The 299 site-located projects include 76 capture, 76 storage, and 147 for capture and storage in more than 30 countries across 6 continents. While several of the projects are still in the planning and development stage, and many have been completed, 37 are actively capturing and/or injecting CO2.

The CCS Database is presented using a Tableau Dashboard which is entirely interactive. Hovering, clicking, and/or dragging any of the icons will customize your view. Adjusting the toolbar on the left allows you to narrow your selection, pan, or zoom in/out on the map.

The NETL CCS Database is also available as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and available offline. To view the NETL CCS Database Tableau Workbook offline, download the Tableau Reader, along with the CCS Database workbook file (use the Download icon tableau in the map frame).


If you have information or updates on any CCS projects, or if you have any questions or feedback regarding the database, please contact NETL's CCS Database Support.
