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

  • Site selection: 4 essential steps to find the best sites for carbon capture

    Site selection: 4 essential steps to find the best sites for carbon capture

    As a decarbonization solution provider, you are faced with an incredible set of opportunities these days: all sites at some point need to decarbonize, or go out of business. But how do you go from the many sites to identify and focus on your best leads – the ones most likely to adopt your solutions? […]

  • 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 […]

  • 8 key learnings from the latest EU ETS emission data for 2022

    8 key learnings from the latest EU ETS emission data for 2022

    The latest EU Emission Trading Scheme (ETS) data, with verified emissions for 2022, has been published early April on the EU Transaction Log. Our early analysis of the data for the power and industry sectors show a 1.4% reduction in emissions between 2021 and 2022. In this article we provide 8 key learnings based on […]

  • 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 […]

  • CCS Ready to Conquer the Ammonia Industry

    CCS Ready to Conquer the Ammonia Industry

    Ammonia is not typically discussed at the dinner tables around the world, but it should be: it’s a vital chemical for making fertilizer, enabling efficient food production for a growing world population. Ammonia’s importance is also linked to significant energy needs and large greenhouse gas emissions. In this article, we give a brief background on […]

  • 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?
