The IEA established this dataset as part of its efforts to track advances in carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS). It covers all CO2 capture, transport, storage, and utilisation projects worldwide that have been commissioned since the 1970s, and have an announced capacity of more than 100 000 t per year (or 1 000 t per year for direct air capture facilities). It includes projects with a clear emissions reduction scope, and excludes CO2 capture for utilisation pathways which bring low climate benefits (e.g. food and beverages), or which are part of the conventional industrial process (e.g. internal use for urea production), as well as use of naturally occurring CO2 for enhanced oil recovery. The database complements other technology-related tracking efforts, such as the Hydrogen Projects database and the Clean Energy Demonstration Projects Database.
Several organisations and companies provided essential input and feedback to the database. They include:
Administrative Centre for China's Agenda 21 (ACCA21), People's Republic of China; Air Liquide; Aker Carbon Capture; BP; Clean Energy Ministerial CCUS (CEM CCUS); Climate Ethanol Alliance; Eni; Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water, Australia; Geoscience Australia; Global CCS Institute; Heidelberg Materials; Holcim; Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA); Korean Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage Association (K-CCUS) ; Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), Japan; Mitsubishi Corporation; Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), Government of Canada; New Energy Technology Research Institute (NETRI), China Energy; Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI); UK Department for Energy Security and Net Zero; US Department of Energy (DOE).
