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.
