ZEP Position Paper: A new long-term strategy for Europe’s industrial future

CO2 underground storage is a safe and mature technology ready for broad implementation, as evidenced by over twenty years of successful storage offshore in Norway, combined with more recent onshore storage in Canada and the USA. In Europe, CCS benefits from a clear set of regulations and requirements under the 2009 EU CO2 Storage Directive that ensure the identification of appropriate storage sites and the safety of subsequent operation.

Report outline – CCS enables early and cost-efficient clean hydrogen at scale

This 5-page report outline focuses on how to kick-start a European clean hydrogen economy. A more extensive report on this subject is planned for autumn 2020. This paper aims at providing input on how the European Commission can enable a European clean hydrogen market with clean hydrogen from natural gas with CCS. The extended version of the report will expand on the technological matters of clean hydrogen production and hydrogen infrastructure, and will indicate what the necessary policy framework could look like.

A CCS industry to support a low-carbon European economic recovery and deliver sustainable growth

Europe and the world are facing an unparalleled economic crisis as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Large public investments will need to be mobilised over the coming years to stimulate economic recovery. European recovery can go hand in hand with the ambitions of the European Green Deal –  to reach net-zero GHG

ZEP response to consultation on European Climate Law

ZEP supports the European Union’s commitment to climate neutrality by 2050, defined as net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050 and welcomes the Climate Law’s approach to 2050. To this end, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) technologies play a crucial role. These technologies represent a readily available,

ZEP response to 2030 Climate Target Plan

Reaching net-zero GHG emissions by 2050 is the primary goal of the European Union’s climate action. This objective will bring about unprecedented challenges for European citizens, regions and industries, and the industrial transition will require the deployment of all technologies available. The European Union will need to preserve existing jobs across key industrial

ZEP response to European Taxonomy for Sustainable Finance

The EU has set climate and energy targets for 2030, and aims to be climate-neutral by 2050. This initiative creates a classification system for sustainable economic activities (‘taxonomy’), and focuses on the EU’s environmental objectives on climate change mitigation and adaptation. This will create a common language that investors can use everywhere when

ZEP response to “Roadmap on Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism”

Europe’s efforts to go climate-neutral by 2050 could be undermined by lack of ambition by our international partners. This would mean a risk of carbon leakage. This occurs when companies transfer production to countries that are less strict about emissions. In such case global emissions would not be reduced. This new mechanism would

ZEP comment to “Roadmap on European Climate Law”

This act writes into law the goal set out in the European Green Deal – for Europe’s economy and society to become climate-neutral by 2050. This means achieving net zero emissions for EU countries as a whole, mainly by cutting emissions, investing in green technologies and protecting the natural environment. The act will
