U.S., Europe, and MENA CCS Project Maps

CATF has built an interactive map that tracks early stage U.S., Europe, and MENA based carbon capture projects that have been publicly announced. Click on each colored circle on the map to learn each project’s location, sector, type of CO₂ storage (EOR or saline), storage capacity and current status. The map also shows the vast expanse of potential geologic saline storage formations around the country.
