COAL21 is the cornerstone of the Australian coal industry’s investment in the research and demonstration of low-emissions coal technologies, including carbon capture and storage (CCS).

For Australia to meet its global emissions reduction commitment while ensuring a stable electricity supply, it will require the use of coal with CCS.


A proven technology

Carbon capture and storage is a proven and reliable technology that has been in use for more than 40 years. There are currently 23 large-scale CCS facilities in operation or under construction globally, including facilities in China, the United States, Japan and Europe.


Database of CCS facilities

The Global CCS Institute is an international member-led organisation whose mission is to accelerate the deployment of CCS as an imperative technology to tackle climate change and provide energy security. The Institute maintains a database of large-scale CCS facilities across the globe. Visit the database
