Notes

This Special Report on Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage (SRCCS) has been prepared under the auspices of Working Group III (Mitigation of Climate Change) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The report has been developed in response to an invitation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) at its seventh Conference of Parties (COP7) in 2001. In April 2002, at its 19th Session in Geneva, the IPCC decided to hold a workshop, which took place in November
2002 in Regina, Canada. The results of this workshop were a first assessment of literature on CO2 capture and storage, and a proposal for a Special Report. At its 20th Session in 2003 in Paris, France, the IPCC endorsed this proposal and agreed on the outline and timetableb. Working Group III was charged to assess the scientific, technical, environmental, economic, and social aspects of capture and storage of CO2. The mandate of the report therefore included the assessment of the technological maturity, the technical and economic potential to contribute to mitigation of climate change, and the costs. It also included legal and regulatory issues, public perception, environmental impacts and safety as well as issues related to inventories and accounting of greenhouse gas emission
reductions.
