Media Advisory | COP 26 (Blue Zone) | Rapid Scale up of Carbon Capture and Storage Technology Needed to Reach International Climate Targets

9th November 2021
Media Advisory

9 November 2021 – In a recent climate report released by international think tank the Global CCS Institute, carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects globally has increased by almost one third in the last year alone. Despite this, a rapid scale up of CCS is still needed, particularly if 2050 climate targets are to be met. To reach net-zero by mid-century, CCS will be responsible for mitigating 15% of the world’s emissions.

Live at COP 26, join the Global CCS Institute as it hosts discussions with the IPCC, IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme, Bellona Europa and Carbon Capture an Storage Association on the role carbon capture and storage will play in the ongoing green transition.
