Cutting greenhouse gases is becoming increasingly urgent, as it becomes ever clearer how dramatic the consequences will be if we don't. CCS alone will not remove all emissions but it can take a large share. And in combination with renewable energy, energy conservation and other climate change mitigation solutions, it can make a very big difference.

The technology for CCS is mature, has been used for decades and will, in the long term, be cheaper and less energy intensive. The barriers and challenges are, in most cases, funding, juridical issues or a lack of political will, or a mix of these factors. That’s why ZERO highlights the need for an effective, permanent and sufficient framework for CCS on all levels; nationally, within EU and globally.

The longer it takes for the first large-scale facilities to be realised, the longer it will take for the next hundred to be built. To be able to reduce emissions fast enough, it is imperative to have the first ten full-scale CCS plants operating now.

Myths and facts about CO2 storage

There are a series of myths surrounding storage of CO2, and it is time to do some myth-busting and debunk some of the most long-lived myths surrounding this. One of the biggest fears concerning storage of CO2 is that this is a new technology and that there are no data gathered from long-term storage. Jul 30, 2013

How can Norway contribute to building a full-scale CCS plant?

ZERO believes that the Norwegian government has to launch a competition for government grants to build a full-scale CCS plant by 2020. The competition should be announced during fall 2014, and the final decision should be made by the end of 2015. Jun 06, 2014
