Conference in Brussels on Carbon Capture & Storage

Platts 3rd Annual European Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) conference is assembling the CCS community to discuss and review CCS projects in their various stages and look to uncover opportunities in what will become a changed regulatory environment to ensure CCS lives up to its potential.

Some of the issues to be covered include, delivering EU Regulatory Framework, finance and investment, public perception, international CCS case-studies and storage selection and liability among others. Some leading companies are also planning to highlight their latest CCS projects.

Carbon Capture and Storage has developed in a short space of time from coal-fired power’s much-heralded saving grace, to Europe’s energy policy catchphrase to real, on-the-ground pilot project status.

With these first-stage investments underway, the energy industry is closer than ever to a genuine assessment of CCS’ viability. CSS says they are looking for updates from the major actors - how are the pilot projects progressing? Is there an adequate spread of projects in the pipeline to test all potential technologies?
