Significant progress has been made for the deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS), notably through the commissioning of CCS pilot plants, continued learning from plants already in operation, the development of legal and regulatory frameworks for facilitating CCS and public outreach activities. This is one of the main findings from a new report by the IEA, the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF), in co-operation with the Global CCS Institute (GCCSI). The report, to be presented at the 2010 Summit in Muskoka, Canada, on 25-26 June 2010, stresses at the same time that more efforts are needed if the G8 goal of broad CCS deployment by 2020 is going to be met. The report is available for >> download.
