Dialogue on frameworks to scale carbon capture and storage and Negative Emissions Technologies

Mon, 8 November 2021, 18.15 – 19.00 GMT, Nordic Pavilion

Technologies to capture carbon for use or storage (CCUS) and Negative Emissions Technologies (NETs) are critical to reach 1.5°C pathways. Most climate scenarios rely on CCS technologies and NETs to reach the Paris Agreement targets. However, these technologies have not been scaled or commercialised to the extent needed to combat climate change.

Similarly, many societal, policy and business challenges are yet to be overcome to successfully implement CCS technologies and NETs on the scale needed for these technologies to have a substantive impact. Therefore, the discussion will delve into the specificities of what barriers need to be addressed to unlock and realise the real-world potential of NETs and CCS.

Governance, financing and societal readiness for NETs and CCS will be the key discussion points of this event. Moreover, case studies will be discussed that will provide real-world examples of leveraging BECCS in Nordic countries (NET-RAPIDO) and applying CCUS in steelmaking (C4U project).
