Global Action to Advance Carbon Capture and Storage

Filed under:

The Carbon Capture, Use and Storage (CCUS) Action Group recently presented its report titled Global Action to Advance Carbon Capture and Storage at the fourth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) in New Delhi.

The CCUS Action Group has called upon the policy makers around the world to recognize the potential of CCS technologies in industrial applications and presented a new report on the status of CCS in various industrial sectors. The report was developed for the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Association and was presented at the fourth Clean Energy Ministerial

CCS is already proven to work in several industrial sectors, but the CCUS Action Group has outlined six critical actions for governments and industry to accelerate and improve CCS in other sectors. 

  1. Governments should commit public funds for CCS demonstration, especially in the iron and steel and cement sectors.
  2. Initially, policies should reward first-mover CCS demonstration projects for their contribution to knowledge rather than for their short-term impact on emission reductions.
  3. CCS should be incorporated into forward-looking government industrial strategies.
  4. Governments must address issues of competitiveness in relation to climate and energy policies when providing incentives for CCS in industrial applications.
  5. Synergies between various sectors should be exploited, including in the power sector, to optimize demonstration and early deployment.
  6. Governments should involve all relevant industrial sectors in their broader CCS development and stakeholder engagement activities.
The CCUS Action Group, with current members from governments, NGOs, businesses and research institutions, states that they will continue to develop key messages on CCS to be shared with the ministers on the annual CEM meetings.
