Infographic – Revision of the TEN-E Regulation

October 23rd, 2020|

This infographic summarises ZEP's response to the revision of the Trans-European Energy Infrastructure (TEN-E) regulation. ZEP supports the European Union’s commitment to reach climate neutrality by 2050, defined as net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. To this end, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) technologies play a crucial role. As geological storage sites are not evenly distributed among member states, the large-scale deployment of cross-border, European CO2 transport and storage infrastructure is crucial to reach the European Union’s objective of net-zero GHG emissions by 2050. This infrastructure will enable clean, competitive energy and industrial sectors, early large-scale clean hydrogen and, not least, the delivery of significant volumes of carbon emission reductions and removals.

Infographic – European Strategy for Energy System Integration

October 23rd, 2020|

This infographic summarises ZEP's response to the 'Roadmap on Strategy for Energy System Integration'. ZEP supports the EU’s objective of climate neutrality by 2050. While designing a strategy for a net-zero compliant energy system, ZEP believes that a technology-neutral approach should be privileged. All low-carbon technologies, such as CCS and CCU, that are scientifically proven and readily available, should be deployed to support a cost-efficient trajectory to climate neutrality.

Infographic – A Trans-European CO2 Transportation Infrastructure for CCUS: Opportunities & Challenges

October 2nd, 2020|

This infographic summarises the ZEP report 'A Trans-European CO2 Transportation Infrastructure for CCUS: Opportunities & Challenges'. This report looks at the challenges and opportunities for CO2 transport in Europe, including pipelines and other modes of transport. It provides an overview of CO2 transportation, particularly in industrial clusters, and highlights the importance of developing dedicated business models, as well as enabling policy framework, for CO2 transportation. This report is particularly relevant in the context of the European Green Deal, as CO2 infrastructure is crucial to deliver large-scale decarbonisation across industry and energy sectors, which will be necessary to achieve climate-neutrality.

Infographic – Europe needs a definition of Carbon Dioxide Removal

October 2nd, 2020|

This infographic summarises ZEP report 'Europe needs a definition of Carbon Dioxide Removal'. This report provides clear and concise definitions of commonly used terms around Carbon Dioxide Removal, to give an overview of existing technologies and their potential for emissions reduction, to identify some examples of European industrial plants that could go carbon negative and to advocate for European CO2 transport and storage infrastructure, a real enabler for large-scale carbon dioxide removals.

Infographic – A method to calculate the positive effects of CCS and CCU on climate change

October 2nd, 2020|

This infographic summarises ZEP report 'A method to calculate the positive effects of CCS and CCU on climate change'. 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.
