U.S., Canada Tops in Efforts to Control Carbon Footprint

North America is the global leader in developing and deploying carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS), with seven of the world's 12 operational large-scale integrated projects located in the U.S. and one in Canada, according to a study by the Global CCS Institute.

These 12 projects prevent the release of 25 million metric tons a year of greenhouse gases. An additional eight projects under construction will increase the total to 38 million metric tons a year by 2016, the report says.

But despite the North American projects, the number of large-scale integrated CCS projects around the world has dropped from 75 last year to 65 this year; five have been canceled, one down-scaled and seven put on hold, according to The Global Status of CCS: 2013.
