Apart from the Asia-Pacific Partnership, the status and progress of oxy-fuel research and technology development is detailed in international conferences and events. Specifically, the International Energy Agency (IEA) Greenhouse Gas Programme arranges the Oxy-fuel Combustion Network, the first being in Cottbus, Germany, in 2006, the second in Windsor, Connecticut, USA in 2007, and the third in Yokohama, Japan, in 2008. The web sites of these meetings include details of all the international demonstrations.
Recent reviews detail the status of the technology and research which has been done, as follows:
