The Zero Emission Technology and Innovation Platform (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).

ZEP would like to commend the approach developed by the Technical Expert Group on the inclusion of CCS in the taxonomy. Specifically, the recognition that CCS is a sustainable economic activity that can help to decarbonise existing industrial activities, such as manufacturing and electricity generation.
