Strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage. Report 3: country studies India
31st March 2009
Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)
India does not currently have any integrated policies or legislation dedicated to encouraging the development of CCS technologies or regulating the conduct of CCS projects in India. The National Clean Development Mechanism Authority of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Government of India has initiated executive moves to investigate the potential of CCS.
To date, however, no CCS specific legislation has been implemented. The Government of India is in the process of creating public awareness and undertaking research and development for CCS technology and activities. Workshops and discussions are taking place throughout the country to investigate the potential for CCS in India.
It is foreseeable that the mandate for CCS would come under a broad legislative framework that would aim to limit India’s GHG emissions. Analysts are of the view that linking CCS with the CDM is necessary before India can support the inclusion of CCS under the CDM umbrella.
