 Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF)

 
 Background


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 the separation and capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) for its transport and long-term safe storage.

The mission of the CSLF is to facilitate the development and deployment of such technologies via collaborative efforts that address key technical, economic, and environmental obstacles. The CSLF will also promote awareness and champion legal, regulatory, financial, and institutional environments conducive to such technologies. The CSLF Charter, established in 2003, establishes a broad outline for cooperation with the purpose of facilitating development of cost-effective techniques for capture and safe long-term storage of CO2, while making these technologies available internationally.

The CSLF is currently comprised of 24 members, including 23 countries and the European Commission. Membership is open to national governmental entities that are significant producers or users of fossil fuels and that have a commitment to invest resources in research, development and demonstration activities in CO2 capture and storage technologies. Members engage in coordinated and cooperative technology development aimed at enabling the early and on-going reduction of CO2 which constitutes more than 60 percent of such emissions – the product of electricity generation and other heavy industrial activity.

At the second ministerial meeting, 10 joint projects were recognized.  These projects range is scope and as a whole are expected to increase our knowledge in all areas, including technology, economics, health, safety, and the environment. Overall, they demonstrate the breadth and richness of ongoing activities around the world involving CO2 capture, transport and storage and should lay the foundation for new and enhanced technology cooperation under the CSLF.

As of December 2009, the CSLF Projects webpage listed 30 projects.

The CSLF is an international climate change initiative that will focus on development of carbon capture and storage technologies as a means to accomplishing long-term stabilization of greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere. This initiative is designed to improve carbon capture and storage technologies through coordinated research and development with international partners and private industry. The website provides information on the CSLF, its member countries, and details on the joint projects that have been recognized.
