Carbon capture projects worldwide rise to 15

There are now 15 projects in operation worldwide that have captured 28 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions from coal and industrial plants this year, a technology that must be scaled-up to tackle climate change, a report from the Global CCS Institute said.

The report said one new carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in Canada and one in Saudi Arabia started operations this year. The number of projects worldwide is now double the number of projects that were in operation in 2010.
