WASHINGTON, Oct 10 (Reuters) – The number of projects that
capture carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and
industrial facilities – seen as a crucial tool for coal-reliant
countries shifting toward a lower-emitting economy – is losing
momentum, dropping from 75 to 65 worldwide since 2012, according
to a new study released Thursday.
The Global CCS Institute, an Australian-funded research
group supporting the deployment of carbon capture and storage
technology worldwide, said in its annual survey that despite
four new large-scale projects coming online this year, the rate
of new projects entering the pipeline has slowed.
