New Funding for CCS in Australia

The Global CCS Institute has announced AUD$2.3 million ($2.4 million) in new funding for CCS projects in Australia. Specifically, the international, Canberra-based collaborative is providing support to three separate initiatives:
  • AUD$1.84 million to Australia's national science agency CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization) for research on the air quality impacts of CCS
  • AUD$240,000 to the CarbonNet CCS network demonstration project backed by the state of Victoria
  • AUD$226,000 to WorleyParsons, a professional services firm active in the energy industry, for a site-specific retrofit feasibility study
With this funding, additional financial support for other projects, and highly valued reports and collateral (for example, see More Tools Available for CCS Policymakers, 6/6/11), the Institute continues to lead global efforts to promote widespread adoption of CCS technologies.
