Advancing The Transition To Negative Carbon Emissions

Since the beginning of the industrial era, carbon dioxide levels in the Earth’s atmosphere have increased significantly. Tackling climate change is one the biggest global challenges that requires immediate action and many industrial sectors are now looking to new technology to help meet net-zero emission targets. Research conducted by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded that carbon capture is an essential technology in the fight to mitigate climate change.

Net zero and beyond: how carbon removal and reduction technologies champion climate targets
Image: 

The CCUS Project Network is delighted to be co-hosting this official COP26 side event, alongside the Global CCS Institute and South Pole. There is increasing recognition that faster and more widespread deployment of carbon removal and reduction technologies, such as carbon capture and storage (CCS), is vital if we are to achieve global climate targets. In some countries, such as Norway, the UK and the US, there is considerable government support for such technologies; in others there remain barriers.

Hydrogen and its relation to CCUS
Image: 

14:00 - 17:00 CEST (13:00 - 16:00 BST). Hydrogen can be used as a fuel, an energy carrier or as feedstock. It is a clean and versatile molecule that can be easily transported and stored. These characteristics make hydrogen particularly attractive as a tool for the decabonisation of the European economy by 2050. Therefore in 2020 the European Commission adopted a new, dedicated Hydrogen Strategy. Currently, most hydrogen is produced from natural gas in a process that results in emissions which need to be captured and stored.

The European Commission is pleased to announce the first high-level forum to engage and facilitate discussions on carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS). The forum is designed to involve all relevant stakeholders, representatives of the EU institutions and EU countries to facilitate deployment of CCUS technologies. The launch of the forum will take place in the presence of both Executive Vice president Frans Timmermans and Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson.

Negative emissions and net zero: how do technologies for carbon dioxide removal measure up?

CO2 removal

Start time 15:00 CEST (14:00 BST). The European Union is committed to keeping the average temperature rise to well below 2°C, preferably closer to 1.5°C, which according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) requires bringing global GHG emissions to net zero by 2050. The IPCC scenarios show that alongside implementing other climate mitigation policies it is essential to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, known as carbon dioxide removal (CDR) which includes negative emission technologies (NETs).

Supporting Europe's 2050 climate targets through Carbon Capture and Storage
Image: 

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) will have a key role to play in Europe’s industrial transition towards net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. CCS are proven, cost-efficient technologies, that are available now and necessary for Europe to reach its target of net-zero emissions by 2050.

Wednesday, June 2, 2021 - 15:00 to 16:00
North-South-East-West: building political support for CCS and CCU in Europe
Image: 

Carbon Capture Storage and/or Utilisation (CCUS) is increasingly being acknowledged as a necessary tool to achieve the decarbonisation of the European economy by 2050. CCUS technologies have a role to play in facilitating the Just Transition, enabling skilled jobs in high-emitting industries to be retained, and allowing workers in oil and gas to apply their skills in the CO₂ transport and storage sector. At the moment, the majority of mature CCUS projects in Europe have been developed in Northern and Western European countries.

Innovation Fund: Lessons learnt from the applications to the 2020 calls
Image: 

On 28 April, the Commission is organising an online event on first two calls for projects launched in 2020 under the Innovation Fund.

The event will provide an overview of the project applications invited to the second stage of the large-scale call, and present lessons learnt and best practices. It will also provide an overview of the applications received for the small-scale call and present the results of the applicants’ survey on the application process. Finally, it will give an outlook on the second round of Innovation Fund calls planned for the fourth quarter of 2021.

When: 
Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 10:00 to 12:00
