    This post explains key characteristics behind the carbon capture projects under development globally, based on data from CaptureMap

  • The biogenic CO2 breakdown: which 6 sectors have the most emissions?

    The biogenic CO2 breakdown: which 6 sectors have the most emissions?

    Large industrial plants frequently use biomass as a power source or raw material, resulting in the release of CO2 that contains carbon from the biomass. This type of CO2 is known as biogenic CO2 emissions. Unlike fossil fuel emissions that release carbon that’s been stored for millions of years, biogenic CO2 comes from recent carbon […]

  • Ethanol – A Great Starting point for Carbon Capture?

    Ethanol – A Great Starting point for Carbon Capture?

    Ethanol is a great compound. It keeps our hands clean during pandemics, it’s used as a feedstock for many industrial chemicals, it can power fuel cells, and it works well in combustion engines. And yes, it can also bring a special touch to celebrations. In addition, ethanol can be a front runner for developing carbon […]

  • E-PRTR: 4 reasons why we love and hate the E-PRTR database

    E-PRTR: 4 reasons why we love and hate the E-PRTR database

    CaptureMap is based on public data, that means that the facilities on the map measure or calculate their CO2 emissions, and report them to their national authorities who then publish the data openly. We pick the data up, and integrate it in our tool. Sounds easy, right? One of the main databases we use is […]

  • The cement industry needs carbon capture for reducing emissions

    The cement industry needs carbon capture for reducing emissions

    The cement industry plays an important role in the global economy, providing the building blocks for infrastructure development and construction projects worldwide. However, cement production is also a major contributor to carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. It is imperative for the cement industry to address this issue and take proactive steps towards reducing its CO2 emissions. […]

  • Good potential for CCS on Waste-to-Energy plants

    Good potential for CCS on Waste-to-Energy plants

    There is increasing interest in the potential for capturing CO2 from waste-to-energy (WtE) plants in Europe, and safely storing it. But how many of these plants are there in Europe, how much CO2 do they emit and how much could be captured?
