20 years of carbon capture and storage: accelerating future deployment is a 2016 publication by the OECD.

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies are expected to play a significant part in the global climate response. This publication reviews progress with CCS technologies over the past 20 years and examines their role in achieving 2°C and well below 2°C targets.

Based on the International Energy Agency’s 2°C scenario, it also considers the implications for climate change if CCS was not a part of the response. And it examines opportunities to accelerate future deployment of CCS to meet the climate goals set in the Paris Agreement.
