International CCS Projects

No one web site identifies every existing and proposed carbon sequestration project. However, the Global CCS Institute releases an annual report on the global status of CCS. The 2012 version is available here. The Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology also maintains a list of key projects around the world.
