Green Recovery: CCUS to support green jobs in industry

Tuesday, December 8, 2020 - 10:00 to 12:30
(time is CET)

Covid-19 has shown that governments can take rapid, decisive and unprecedented measures in the face of a looming threat, and this has prompted calls to use investment to ‘build back better’ as countries recover. This event is about exploring the role of carbon capture storage and/or utilisation (CCUS) in both the just transition to a net-zero Europe, and a green recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

CCUS technologies have a crucial role in 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 same time, building the new infrastructure that will be needed for CCUS provides new construction jobs, as well as the opportunity to lay the foundations for low-carbon inward investment.

The Norwegian government has submitted a proposal to the Norwegian Parliament to launch the NOK 25.1 Billion carbon capture and storage (CCS) project named Langskip (Longship), and six CO₂ transport projects of common interest have recently received funding through the Connecting Europe Facility in order to move them forward. Find out more about how these projects will support a just transition and a green recovery, and how the EU Climate Law can drive further investment in industrial decarbonisation.
