Capturing, utilizing, storing and removing carbon dioxide 

The world will need to store many gigatonnes of carbon dioxide per year as part of a broad package of solutions to get to net zero emissionsOGCI is working with industry, governments and other investors to scale up carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS). We are also exploring the role OGCI can play in enhancing natural climate solutions and scaling up engineered carbon removals. 

What OGCI is doing

CCUS is one of OGCI’s top priorities. We aim to facilitate the emergence of a commercially viable CCUS industry that can safely, permanently and responsibly store carbon dioxide on a gigatonne scale. 

OGCI launched its CCUS KickStarter Initiative in 2019 to help establish multiple low-carbon hubs. These CCUS hubs take carbon dioxide from several emitting sources, such as heavy industries and power, and then transport and store it using common infrastructure. OGCI companies are now developing over 20 CCUS hubs around the world.

To enable the emergence of a commercially viable CCUS industry on the scale that is required to tackle industrial decarbonization, we need a clear focus on CO2 storage resource capacity, on policies & regulations and on innovative business models.

That’s why OGCI launched The CCUS Hub. This platform is designed to help regulators, industrial emitters and transport & storage operators to identify potential hubs and learn lessons on how best to set them up from the most advanced hubs.

Emerging CCUS hubs with OGCI member company involvement

OGCI member companies are now involved in the development of more than 20 potential CCUS hubs around the world.

What OGCI member companies are doing to accelerate CCUS

Member companies are investing in technologies, projects and hubs that capture, store, use or remove carbon dioxide from industrial processes, power generation and the atmosphere.

What OGCI Climate Investments is doing to accelerate carbon capture

We invest in innovative capture technologies, utilization solutions and projects to scale up CCUS.

Svante

Svante aims to halve the cost of carbon capture through its breakthrough scalable technology.

Keystate

Keystate

KeyState is a first-of-its-kind project integrating on-site natural gas extraction, chemical production, and carbon capture and storage (CCS) in a closed carbon loop. Once operational, the 7,000-acre site is expected to have the capacity to store over 300,000 tons of CO2 per year.

Solidia Technologies

Solidia has developed patented systems for producing lower-emissions cement and concrete cured with carbon dioxide rather than water.

Econic

Econic uses pioneering catalyst technology to incorporate carbon dioxide as a raw material into polyols.

Net Zero Teesside

Net Zero Teesside is a CCUS project, located in the North East of England, which aims to deliver the UK’s first zero-carbon industrial cluster.

Wabash Valley Resources

Wabash Valley Resources are developing a project that will capture and sequester 1.5-1.75 million tons of CO2 annually from their co-located ammonia plant, to create the world’s first ammonia produced with near zero carbon footprint.

Elk Hills Carbon LLC

Elk Hills Carbon is a CCUS project led by California Resources Corporation (CRC), the largest oil and natural gas producer in California, which will capture CO2 from a natural gas power plant.

NextDecade

NextDecade, the developer of Rio Grande LNG, plans to capture and permanently store more than 5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year – over 90% of its emissions – making it one of North America’s largest US CCS projects in development.
