Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) Projects Explorer by International Energy Agency (IEA)

Hello Queseanians,

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has published a new database that contains details of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) projects from around the globe. The database is an important tool for monitoring advances in CCUS technology and complements other IEA databases such as the Hydrogen Projects database and the Clean Energy Demonstration Projects Database.

The world operational CO2 capture facilities in 2022 distributed by sector reveals that most projects are linked to the Natural gas processing industry. As of the planned CO2 capture facilities with an announced capacity of more than 100,000 t per year and an announced timeline distributed by sector we can observe that in 2030 more and more industries are exploring carbon capture technologies with a significant increase to the Hydrogen/ammonia industry and the power/heat industry in addition to the natural gas processing.

Also, I anticipated that the planned carbon capture store facilities will have more capacity than the capture, which is confirmed by the below graph.
