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
This infographic summarises ZEP's report 'Europe needs robust accounting for carbon dioxide removal', produced by ZEP's Temporary Working Group on Carbon Dioxide Removal. The report provides a definition of carbon dioxide removal (based on the four principles presented in the previous ZEP report ‘Europe needs a definition of carbon dioxide removal’) that defines a screening process to identify whether CCS and CCU projects may lead to CDR and outlines the factors that need to be considered when assessing a project’s potential for CDR.
In a #CCS & #CCU context, BioCCS & Waste-to-Energy with CCS will play a key role to decarbonise energy-intensive industry & manage waste in cities. Join ZEP expert webinar with speakers from @SINTEF @Bellona_EU @SthlmExergi @hd_cement @Fortum Oslo Varme ➡️https://t.co/krWAK1Wv2J
ZEP member @Shell opens a call for solutions in ‘Well Technologies for storage of CO2 & H2 in Geoformations’, seeking game-changing technologies related to design, drilling, completion & operation of wells for injecting CO2 or H2 into subsurface strata ➡️ https://t.co/U7cwHMEDDs
CO2 transport infrastructure is a no-regret investment opportunity for🇪🇺
🔹Connect CO2 emitters across Europe to permanent geological storage of captured CO2
🔹Early large-scale clean #hydrogen
🔹Deliver CO2 reductions & removals
