CHAPTER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Projects at the pilot scale have made a significant contribution to the global development of CCS.
  • The early focus of pilot scale projects has been on capture though the US DOE has supported seven Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships.
  • While Japan does not have a large-scale CCS project, it has an extensive CCS development program underway at lesser scale.
