Understanding the environmental and economic performance of carbon capture, utilization, and storage technologies is vital for accelerating commercialization and impact.
This website, created by the Global CO2 Initiative at the University of Michigan with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, offers resources for those looking to learn about, perform, and review life cycle and techno-economic assessments of carbon capture, utilization, and storage technologies. This article in Frontiers in Climate describes the history and development of the site in more detail.
Through providing instructional materials, links to external resources, case studies, and more, we hope to empower a wide variety of stakeholders and accelerate the deployment and positive impact of carbon-utilizing and carbon-storing technologies.
Please use the Global CO2 Initiative’s contact form if you have any comments, questions, or recommendations regarding AssessCCUS.
The International CCU Assessment Harmonization Group contributed to the creation of this site. This group is working to create a common framework for consistent conduct and transparent reporting of life cycle and techno-economic assessments of carbon capture, utilization, and storage. Such a framework will help identify the opportunities and risks of these technologies to ultimately promote research, development, and commercialization.
