The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is hosted by the United Nations (UN) Environment Programme and the UN Industrial Development Organization. It provides technical assistance in response to requests from developing economies or nationally-selected focal points on specific climate technology sectors.
Examples of CCUS-focused CTCN projects include:
1) “Carbon capture and storage potential in Nigeria”. This project assessed regulatory gaps for CCUS in Nigeria and aimed to increase the institutional capacity for implementation of projects in the country.
2) “Substantial GHG emissions reduction in the cement industry by using waste heat recovery combined with mineral carbon capture and utilization”. This project provided technical and financial assessment and developed a business plan and strategic recommendations related to potential applications of CCUS.
