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 value of CCS and CCU projects to climate change mitigation is crucial, however, how to assess the added value, to be more exact, is complex. There are many factors that could play a major role, such as which boundary conditions and assumptions to use.
With this report, we are introducing three fundamental characteristics for the classification of technologies for climate change abatement of CCU and CCS projects: mitigation effect, net energy consumption, and implementation period. This report also includes examples showing the value of this concept.
#CCS and #CCU projects can contribute considerably to mitigating climate change – how do we assess added value? A new ZEP report focuses on methods used to calculate the positive effects that CCS and CCU projects have on climate change. Take a look👉 https://t.co/CwYq9vgfK0 (1/3)
The #CO2Removal report offers clear, concise definitions of commonly used terms around Carbon Dioxide Removal and gives an overview of existing technologies and their potential for emissions reduction 👉 https://t.co/UYTnXLABxS (2/3)
Achieving #netzero emissions requires a net balance between emissions & removals from the atmosphere 🏭💨 Our new #CO2Removal report features clear principles & illustrations of carbon flows depicting Carbon Dioxide Removal https://t.co/UYTnXLABxS (1/3)
Today, ZEP & high-level industry representatives met with @TimmermansEU to present shovel-ready #CCS projects & discuss how these projects, CO2 infrastructure & clean hydrogen can support Europe’s post-pandemic recovery plan https://t.co/cAp3xb9rhg
