Institute welcomes important milestone for transboundary carbon capture and storage
15th October 2019
The parties of the London Protocol agreed to allow the provisional application of the 2009 amendment of Article 6 to the London Protocol allowing for cross-border transport and export of CO2 for geological storage in sub-seabed geological formations at the London Convention meeting held between 7-11 October in London.
Welcoming the latest developments, Guloren Turan, General-Manager, Advocacy and Communications from the Global CCS Institute said: “This is an important milestone for the future deployment of CCS in Europe and globally. Many of the CCS projects under development rely on the international transport of CO2, notably in Europe.”
