Where is carbon capture technology being used?

There are about 20 CCUS projects operating commercially, nowhere near enough to clean up the world’s carbon emissions. The early forerunners are in the US, Canada, Norway and China. Although CCUS has had a slow start, 30 new projects have been agreed in the past three years, the International Energy Agency says. The watchdog says there must be many more to keep carbon emissions from heating the world to more than 1.5C above pre-industrialised levels.
