Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS): Time to inject a new sense of urgency?

The European Commission unveiled its 2050 climate strategy on November 28th, saying the transition to “a climate neutral economy” with net-zero emissions by mid-century will be positive for the economy, despite the significant additional investments it will require.

Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) systems play a key role in the technological efforts to mitigate emissions, particularly from heavy industries such as steel, chemicals and cement. However, both political will and financial means are necessary to get the first European demonstration projects up and running.

EURACTIV organised this high-level Stakeholder Workshop to discuss the opportunities for CCUS on the road to 2050.

Questions included:

  • Why should Member States support CCUS?
  • Can CCUS help decarbonise the heat and power sectors?
  • What are the challenges and hurdles towards implementation?
  • Is business ready to deliver?
