Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum

From Global Energy Monitor

The Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) describes itself as "an international climate change initiative that is focused on development of improved cost-effective technologies for the separation and capture of carbon dioxide for its transport and long-term safe storage. The purpose of the CSLF is to make these technologies broadly available internationally; and to identify and address wider issues relating to carbon capture and storage."[1]


On its website the CSLF states that "membership is open to national governmental entities that are significant producers or users of fossil fuel and that have a commitment to invest resources in research, development and demonstration activities in carbon dioxide capture and storage technologies." Current members, as of February 2009, are[1]:
