IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme

Information Papers

IEAGHG now produce Information Papers (IP’s) on a variety of topics. This is part of a response to members wishes to provide more timely reporting, and to ensure that we keep abreast of the issues, both within the CCS arena, and matters further afield which still impact on the wider climate change topic.

Most IEAGHG Information Papers are free to access, and will be uploaded here as and when we publish them. Occasionally however an IP will be deemed Confidential, for Executive Committee only, and these will not be available to download. Due to this, there will be the occasional gap in the numbering appearing below.

For more information, or if you have any ideas that you feel would be suitable for IEAGHG to write a short Information paper on, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
