    The Global CCS Institute is an international membership organisation that works to accelerate the development, demonstration and deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS), a vital technology to tackle climate change and provide energy security. CCS is used to help cut down green house gas emissions by preventing CO2 from being released into the atmosphere. The Institute was established in 2009 with initial funding from the Australian Government to accelerate the development of CCS globally.

  • Policies to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Industry--Successful Approaches and Lessons Learned: Workshop Report

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 1, 2003
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    The industry sector is an important direct and indirect source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Annex I countries. Emissions from the industry sector are expected to draw increasing attention by policymakers as they look for means to reduce domestic GHG emissions. For this reason, the Annex I Expert Group (AIXG) on the UNFCCC decided to hold a workshop in Berlin on 2-3 December 2002 to discuss the range of policies to reduce GHG emissions in industry, with a focus on voluntary approaches (VAs), taxes and trading.

  • PFC Emissions from Aluminium Production

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 1, 2000
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This report provides guidance on how countries should estimate and report to the UNFCCC their PFC emissions from the primary aluminium production process, which is the largest anthropogenic source of emissions of two PFCs: CF4 and C2F6. Emissions of CF4 and C2F6, therefore, vary significantly from one aluminium smelter to the next, depending on pot technology and operating procedures. The IPCC guidelines recommend multiplying aluminium production by CF4 emission factor and C2F6 emission factor.

  • International Carbon Flows: Aluminium

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 5, 2011
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Approximately one-third (28 per cent) of aluminium emissions cross a border embodied in commodity aluminium. Half of this trade is contained within regions, and the other half between regions. The 10 largest inter-regional flows of carbon embodied in traded aluminium and other non-ferrous metals are illustrated above, with the most significant being from the CIS (ex-Soviet Union Commonwealth of Independent States) to Europe, China to the rest of Asia and Australia to Asia.

  • Global Non-Ferrous Scrap Flows 2000-2011

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    The goal of this report is to provide an understanding of global non-ferrous metal scrap flows in the context of non-ferrous industry developments over the 2000 to 2011 period. The focus of this study is on copper and aluminium as the two largest non-ferrous metals in terms of both material tonnages and market value. The report consists of four chapters. The first chapter, presented here, provides a brief backdrop to the analysis on non-ferrous scrap flows. It outlines growth in metal demand and the underlying reasons for this growth.

  • Global Anthropogenic Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions: 1990-2030

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 12, 2012
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This report provides historical and projected estimates of emissions of non-carbon-dioxide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from anthropogenic sources. It provides a consistent and comprehensive estimate for 92 individual countries and 8 regions. The analysis provides information that can be used to understand national contributions of GHG emissions, historical progress on reductions and mitigation opportunities. Although this document is being published by the U.S.
