SANEDI's international membership includes governments, global corporations, private companies, research bodies and HGOs that are committed to Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) as an integral part of a net-zero emissions future.
The South African government has pledged to cut its total CO2 emissions through increased energy efficiency, renewable energy, nuclear, cleaner mobility and CCS and others.

However, Chinese companies financed a feasibility study for the project without EU funding, leading the EC to argue its planned €7 million contribution to the project was no longer possible. Even so, the EC notes it remains committed to an expert dialogue with China on CCUS.
According to the Melbourne, Australia-based Global CCS Institute, there are nine large-scale CCS facilities in China "in different stages of advancement" with only one such facility in operation.
But China's four fossil-based power plants with CCS are all still in early development phase and not expected to be fully operational until somewhere in the 2020s.
To date, the EU has not managed to get CCS projects into operation.

"What does that mean? Not getting off fossil fuels but reducing emissions? You're not buying the CCS (carbon capture and storage) nonsense are you? Are you? If you see a separation between getting off fossil fuels as one thing and reducing greenhouse gas emissions as another, then the only way to reconcile those two positions is to believe in the tooth fairy."
"The window for action is closing fast -- we need to do more and we need to do it now." Gore added.
Note: According to the Global CCS Institute, 18 large-scale CO2 trapping facilities are in operation with five in various stages of construction, and another 20 in various stages of development worldwide.

China's recently commissioned CCS facility in Jilin has reached a storage capacity of 0.6 million tpy of CO2, ranking it 18th major commercial CCS facilities in the U.S., Canada, Norway, Brazil, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.
China's National Centre for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation
is developing two additional large-scale CCS facilities -- the Sinopec Qilu Petrochemical CCS facility in Zibo, Shangdong Province, and the Yanchang CCS facility in Xi-an, Shaanxi Province. These facilities will capture 400,000 tonnes, and 410,000 tpy of CO2 respectively.

The CCUS initiative will seek to support and accelerate existing CCUS projects such as those undertaken by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum, the International Energy Agency (IEA), the IEA's Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme, Mission Innovation, and the Global CCS Institute.
The US, Saudi Arabia and Norway will lead the project, with international partners including Canada, China, Japan, Mexico, and the UK.
The technologies are predicted to play a key role in global decarbonization efforts, with nuclear set to make energy-intensive processes such as desalination, hydrogen production and energy storage carbon neutral.
Following the Paris Agreement, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and IEA predicted that CCUS would be essential to limiting global warming to 2 degree C. (Source: US DOE, Power Tech, 31 May, 2018)
