The Global CCS Institute released a report October 10 finding that more investment in carbon capture and storage projects is needed to meet the international goal of limiting the global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius by 2050, and that government support will be critical. The report, The Global Status of CCS: 2012, concluded that 130 projects would need to be in operation by 2020 in order to achieve that goal, but that only 51 projects are expected to be in operation by 2020, some of which may be cancelled; 16 projects are currently in operation or under construction worldwide, while 75 large-scale projects are in some stage of development.
