IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme

IEAGHG funds research into carbon capture and storage (CCS), also known as CO2 capture and storage, or carbon sequestration.

Our work focuses on technologies that can reduce our carbon emissions, and mitigate climate change and global warming. We are a not for profit organisation, and all of our work is subject to peer review ensuring that it remains impartial and unbiased.

An important aspect of the IEAGHG’s activities is to ensure that the results of its work are disseminated as widely as possible.  IEAGHG has been asked by its members to produce short briefing papers on a 6 monthly basis that inform the broader community of developments in both Greenhouse Gas Mitigation and the Technical Status of CCS.

The GHG Mitigation Brief aims to summarise key climate change science, policy and technology developments, identified by IEAGHG, in a 6 month period and aims to provide information for both its members and the broader policy development community, interest groups and policy makers.

The CCS Technical Status Brief aims to summarise key technical developments in CCS that IEAGHG has identified with a six month period and put these developments into the broader context of what they mean for the deployment of CCS.
