Research is a fundamental piece that allows development and use of knowledge to explain phenomena and problems in our environment. For this reason, design of strategies, project planning and decision-making are strengthened through access to scientifically-based information that helps to improve the understanding of the problems and the search alternatives for possible solutions.

This section provides information, publications, and knowledge about CCS in Mexico, methodologies for evaluating such projects and sites of interest.

Scientists may depict problems that will affect the environment based on available evidence, but their solution is not responsibility of scientists but of society as a whole.

This section integrates knowledge, experience and effort of professionals, academics, students, working and research groups that have contributed to the study of CCS in Mexico from different areas and sectors. Here, you will access books, scientific articles, theses, reports, research, regulations, posters and communication materials.

The documents you will find here have been compiled through an open call for all those interested in sharing their work on this website and through a bibliographic search in national and international journals and public databases.


A methodology consists of a series of procedures and techniques that allow to attend one or more objectives. It can be applied in different fields and areas of knowledge and is based on both theory and practice.

We present four methodologies that are frequently used to evaluate, plan, and monitor different types of projects. Some of them submit innovative proposals based on interdisciplinary work and thinking “out of the box” to help measure the impact of implementing new policies or interventions. In each of them, you will find examples of how they are applied in CCS projects.


We leave you a list of links from different sites in case you want to know more about the organisations, research centres and some CCS projects worldwide so you can continue to improve your knowledge on the subject, have references to expand your contact networks or start looking for synergies and collaborations.


These are the four organisations and initiatives in which experts from around the world and representatives of government, academia, industry and civil society gather to promote and drive CCS / CCUS.

Supporting and financial programmes

Among the organisations and associations that support and finance CCS / CCUS projects are:

Research Centres

These are some of the CCS / CCUS research centres around the world:

Databases and projects’ information

In the following databases, you can find information about CCS / CCUS projects in the world and the geological storage potential of CO₂ that has been estimated to date. Both databases are public and free access.

According to the CCS 2021 Global Status Report, published by the Global CCS Institute:

Limiting global warming to 2 ° C requires CCS installed capacity to increase to
5,600 Mtpa by 2050

Currently, there are:


27 operational
4 under construction
58 advanced developments
44 initial developments
2 suspended

40 mton
per year

captured and stored

48% increase
in total capacity

of CCS facilities under development in the last year alone

Applications for CCUS projects include:

  • Direct air capture
  • Cement production
  • Iron and steel production
  • Conversion of waste into energy
  • Power generation (natural gas)
  • Power generation (coal)
  • Hydrogen production
  • Chemical production
  • Ethanol production
  • Fertiliser production
  • Natural gas processing
