The Global Status of CCS: The Next Wave of Carbon Capture

4th February 2020

Location(s): Washington DC, Type(s): Conference

Please join the Global CCS Institute at the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for the US launch of the Global Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Institute’s Global Status of CCS 2019: Targeting Climate Change report where we will discuss CCS progress, policies, and facilities in the context of the net-zero emissions transition. The report was first launched at the 25th Conference of the Parties (COP) in Madrid, Spain.

With mounting pressure to deliver on climate ambition and the daunting prognosis elucidated in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 1.5°C Report, the need to deploy CCS technologies to decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors and achieve negative emissions has become increasingly more urgent.

In tandem with policy and government support around the world, private sector action has catalyzed the next wave of global carbon capture and storage projects. Particularly in the United States, innovative incentive mechanisms and sustained government support are driving new project announcements. In emphasizing large-scale emissions, cost, and risk reductions, the next wave of CCS facilities incorporates emissions clusters as well as new business models for carbon transport and storage. At the same time, negative emissions technologies have also gained noticeable momentum.

This event will explore the current status of carbon capture and storage, the next generation of CCS projects, policies, and technologies taking shape around the world, and the important part they play in global decarbonization. This discussion will feature various carbon capture and storage experts as they evaluate the role and progress of CCS in mitigating climate change and advancing the net-zero emissions transition.

Join us on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Atlantic Council headquarters (1030 15th Street NW, West Tower Elevators, 12th Floor, Washington, DC 20005) for an exciting and enriching discussion. This event is on the record and open to the media. A cocktail reception will follow the event. Click here to RSVP.
