Energy, environment and climate
The European Commission is organising 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 Commission Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans and European Commissioner for energy Kadri Simson.
Closing the gap to climate neutrality by 2050 would require innovative solutions for capturing CO2 and durably storing it in ecosystems, geological reservoirs or products. Technological solutions such as the combination of bioenergy or direct air captured CO2 with CCUS have the potential to remove several hundred million tonnes of CO2 per year.
