Virtual Special Issue - International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control: CO2 storage capacity

Introduction by John Gale, Editor-in-Chief

Do we have the capacity?

The development of CO2 capture and storage (CCS) as a technology option to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions is now moving at pace. The G8 have made a commitment to establish 20 CCS demonstration plants by 2020. The Australian Government has established the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute (GCCSI) to support and assist the implementation of these 20 demonstration plants. Read full introduction
