Webinar on Carbon capture and storage: A key technology in low-emissions pathways

Online 29 November 2016 15:00 - 16:00

Tuesday 29 November 15:00-16:00 UK time.
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a key technology in transforming the energy system and moving towards the long-term temperature goals of the Paris Agreement. However, there are several barriers preventing it from expanding more swiftly. The webinar will cover:

  • The role of CCS as a key technology in low-emissions pathways.
  • The potential for CCS to reduce emissions in the power sector and carbon intensive industries (e.g. cement, steel, oil and gas,).
  • The potential to achieve negative emissions when used with bionergy.
  • Barriers including policy frameworks, scaling and storage capacity and what can be done to resolve them.

Julio Friedmann, Senior adviser for Energy Innovation at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Xavier Riera-Palou, CO2 Strategy Manager, Shell and Chair of IPIECA’s Climate Change Working Group.

The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
