Joint letter: CCS and CCU for the EU’s Industrial Transition

Ahead of the publication of the EU’s Industrial Strategy, a group of trade associations including IOGP issued a joint call for the Commission to make Carbon Capture Use & Storage an integral part of this Strategy, in the context of the European Green Deal.

Nearly all ambitious climate scenarios of the IPCC, IEA and European Commission show a key role for CCU and CCS, in particular to achieve emission cuts in ‘hard-to-abate’ sectors.

The signatories call on policymakers to put in place a policy framework which will foster the large-scale deployment of these breakthrough technologies.
