The Carbon Sequestration Initiative -- CSI

The Carbon Sequestration Initiative (CSI) is an industrial consortium formed to investigate carbon capture and storage technologies. The consortium began in July 2000. Currently there are nine sponsors: American Petroleum Institute, Chevron, Duke Energy, Entergy, EPRI, ExxonMobil, Shell, Southern Company and Suncor.

The Consortium objectives include:

  • Provide an objective source of assessment and information about carbon sequestration.

  • Establish a members' information network to provide timely updates on relevant activities and new findings.

  • Explore the societal and technical aspects of carbon sequestration.

  • Educate a wider audience on the possibilities of carbon sequestration.

  • Link industry to expanding government activities on these topics.

  • Stimulate and seed new research ideas.

  • Create an annual forum for strategic thinking and identification of new business opportunities.
