Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is the capture, from power plants and other facilities, and storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases that would otherwise be emitted to the atmosphere.
The Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) is a Ministerial-level international climate change initiative that is focused on the development of improved cost-effective technologies for CCS. It also promotes awareness and champions legal, regulatory, financial, and institutional environments conducive to such technologies.
Become a member. Membership is open to national governmental entities that are significant producers or users of fossil fuels and that have a commitment to invest in CCS research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) activities.
Become a stakeholder. Organizations that are affected by (and can affect) CSLF goals form an essential component of CSLF activities.
Learn from the academic community. The academic community plays a vital role to advance CCS technologies through a wide range of educational programs that support the development of the next generation of scientists, engineers, and policy makers.
The National Risk Assessment Partnership Phase I Tools are intended to help address leakage and induced seismicity risks associated with geologic carbon storage (GCS). These tools are designed to foster robust, objective, and science-based communication and decision making with respect to large-scale application of GCS and accelerate the adoption of GCS technologies.

Published by the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, this study aims to identify at least one technically feasible CCS chain (capture, transport and storage) with corresponding cost estimates. This study finds that a flexible CCS chain is feasible that makes use of CO2 transport by ship from multiple sources to a single storage hub. View document.
In this letter to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), Ernest Moniz, former U.S. Secretary of Energy, and Khalid A. Al Falih, Saudi Arabia's Minister of Energy, Industry, and Mineral Resources, on behalf of the CSLF, discuss the importance of CCS as a technology pathway to deliver national climate targets.
