CCS is an emerging technology for CO2 emission reduction. Many research projects are underway all over the world, but only a few large-scale commercial projects are in operation.
The initial widespread deployment of commercial CCS projects will most likely take place in industrialized countries. Nontheless, with successful technology transfer to developing countries, CCS could be implemented all over the world within a few decades.
There are a lot of research projects on CCS going on all over the world, and the number of workshops and conferences held each year is growing. This is a clear indication that CCS is regarded as a significant and valuable technology to combat global warming. To check the examples of running CCS projects, please see this section.
