Negotiating the ever-changing landscape of carbon capture and storage (CCS) can be tricky as projects move to construction, wrap up research programs or even change their names.
Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS) has relaunched its Global CCS Map. This interactive world of CCS has been extensively updated while retaining most of its original features. These include:
- Information on over 200 CCS projects, ranging from small to large scale and across the CCS chain
- Display buttons allowing the user to “filter” information in the viewing window
- At-a-glance information including, for example, the project’s developer, current status (e.g. planned, being built, operating) capture method, and planned volume of CO2storage
- A deeper level of information providing project data, useful links and news updates
The Global CCS Map seeks to provide an accurate and trustworthy source of information on projects that support the development of the full CCS chain, so facilities capturing CO2 for more traditional uses – such as for the food and drink industry – are generally not included. Projects that have been cancelled several years ago with little likelihood of revival have been weeded out, although those of historical interest have been retained.
