ZEP is the technical adviser to the EU on the deployment of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) – a European Technology and Innovation Platform (ETIP) under the Commission’s Strategic Energy Technologies Plan (SET-Plan). CCS and CCU will be essential for the European transition to net neutrality, ensuring that power generation and industrial processes are secure, reliable and sustainable
The European Commission today presented their plan to increase the EU’s 2030 target for emission reduction to at least 55%, up from 40%. This ambitious revision of the target would further support Europe’s commitment to become climate-neutral by 2050, in line with the European Green Deal.
Today, @EU_Commission proposed to increase EU 2030 target for emission reduction to at least 55%. #CCS & #CCU among low-carbon technologies to be developed & tested over next decade & contribute to decarbonise industry after 2030. ZEP press release ➡️ https://t.co/8kumTF9nqE
Congratulations to ZEP members @Equinor, @Shell and @Total on the Northern Lights project receiving this award 👏 Increasing recognition that #CCS technologies are proven, available now, and ready to contribute to reducing CO2 emissions.
This report from @AuroraER_Oxford highlights that demand for #hydrogen could rise to between 200 and 700 TWh in Northwest Europe by 2050. Low-carbon hydrogen produced from reformed natural gas with #CCS is expected to play an important role to reach EU #netzero emission targets.
Repurposing existing infrastructure for transporting & storing CO2 can enable significant cost savings 💸 Our #CO2Transport report discusses opportunities, remaining technical & legislative challenges in the context of using existing natural gas pipelines: https://t.co/qH9DkfwhmA
