ACI’s European CCS Industry Summit will be taking place in London, UK on 14th and 15th of September 2022.
While CO2 emissions from fuel combustion have been declining in Europe, industries like cement, iron and steel, aluminium, pulp and paper, and refineries have inherent CO2 emissions resulting from energy-intensive industry processes. CCS can provide a key contribution to tackling these sectors’ emissions. Furthermore, it can help removing carbon from the atmosphere through carbon removals such as bio-energy carbon capture and storage (BECCS) and direct air carbon capture and storage (DACCS) and be a platform for low-carbon hydrogen production. The Commission’s 2050 long term strategy depends in part on CO2 removal techniques based on CCS: either in combination with direct air capture or biomass to achieve climate neutrality. The target of climate neutrality has been written into the European Climate Law which requires a balanced Union-wide greenhouse gas emissions and removals within the Union at the latest by 2050 and that the Union shall aim to achieve negative emissions thereafter.
The event will focus on the legislation, regulatory framework, infrastructure overview, potential issues and technology opportunities within the CCS industry. The conference will highlight the challenges to improve the cost-efficiency of CCS projects in Europe, along with the need to develop new CCS technologies in line with complying with regulations. The summit will also cover the need for shared business models as well as the insight of the future of CCS.
This two day event will bring together will bring together senior executives from power plants owners, oil and gas companies, ongoing carbon capture and storage projects, consultants, researchers, as well as other influential stakeholders involved in the CCS value chain.
Join us this September in London to exchange your opinions and technical knowledge with your peers, and engage in excellent networking opportunities.
