NETL's Carbon Capture and Storage Database – Version 5

Welcome to NETL's Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Database. The database includes active, proposed, and terminated CCS projects worldwide. Information in the database regarding technologies being developed for capture, evaluation of sites for carbon dioxide (CO2) storage, an 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 November 2014, the database contained 274 CCS projects worldwide. The 274 projects include 69 capture, 60 storage, and 145 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, 128 are actively capturing and injecting CO2.
