Carbon Capture Search Engine

This carbon capture search engine helps find information related to carbon capture and storage (CCS) as well as related areas such as utilization of captured carbon.


If the search box isn't displaying correctly here, it's a temporary problem. See Carbon Capture Search in the meantime.

About this search[edit]

This search engine was built by Chriswaterguy to help in research for for the Global CCS Institute's OpenCCS project, a wiki-style knowledge base

This search engine is a work in progress, but is already of some use.

Some points on its current state:

  • Searching tends brings up research papers first, before applying filters. Site priorities need to be tweaked.
  • If you have trouble finding a definition of a term in CCS, or basic information about a CCS topic, try the "CCS orgs" filter, in the "Refine results" options after you search.
  • The "Open content" filter needs to be fixed.

If you have a site to suggest, or want the list of sites used, please leave a note on the talk page. I'm happy to share, but I'm planning to make time for that when development is mostly finished. --Chriswaterguy 08:08, 20 November 2011 (PST)

Development ideas[edit]

Finding more government sites - search for

  • URL patterns? energy.*.gov, carbon.*.gov
  • "climatechange" site:.gov ccs OR "carbon capture" OR "carbon dioxide capture"
  • cut down the noise for these searches with -site:climatechange.ca.gov -site:epa.gov...
