Carbon Capture and Storage in EU energy intensive industries

  • Publisher: ZEP
  • Issued: 26/06/2013

Find below ZEP's report on CCS in EU energy intensive industries. This is considered an indispensible route for a low carbon economy in 2050. Direct emissions from industry account for 25% of the total EU CO2 emission. Petroleum refining, iron and steel, cement and chemical industries account for 60% of the total EU CO2 emissions from industry.

CCS is the only available technology that can deliver the deep emissions cuts required by several AE energy-intensive industries if they are to fulfil their role in a large-scale decarbonisation across the EU economy. CCS has the potential to mitigate between 2 to 2.5 GtCO2 per year globally by 2050. This equates to between 0.3 to 0.4 GtCO2 in the EU27.
