Who we are
At the International CCS Knowledge Centre (Knowledge Centre), we take climate action seriously. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects as a critical means of managing greenhouse gas emissions and achieving the world’s ambitious climate goals.

We have a proven track record of helping our clients lower costs, reduce risk and improve the performance of CCS projects across industries and technology platforms using the latest knowledge and lessons learned from major projects across the globe.
Our focus is on understanding and protecting the owner’s interest in large-scale CCS project investments, offering practical guidance in all aspects of CCS project development, from strategic analysis, business case advice and stakeholder engagement support to technology selection, pilot testing, feasibility and front end engineering design (FEED) studies, project permitting, construction, commissioning, transition to operations, and ongoing optimization and trouble-shooting.
We also provide input to policy development and promote broad collaboration between stakeholders to enhance understanding of the critical role CCS plays in global decarbonization efforts and accelerate the deployment of new CCS projects around the world.
