Today marks the start of the 23rd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP23) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). IPIECA will be attending COP23 and holding a side event Making CCS fly, as part of our effort to raise understanding and help inform constructive discussion on carbon capture and storage (CCS).
In 2016 IPIECA released a report Exploring low-emissions pathways which identified CCS as a key technology in meeting the aims of the Paris Agreement, and in September 2017, held a workshop to discuss the role, barriers and opportunities of CCS with participants from across the oil and gas industry, other industry sectors, academia, and varies government organizations.
IPIECA will continue the dialogue on CCS at COP23, where during the side event, expert speakers will communicate the outcomes of the workshop and panellists will discuss their views on the role of CCS for meeting the aims of the Paris Agreement.
The event will take place on Monday 13 November from 15:00-18:00 in the IETA Business Hub, Bonn Zone and will feature:
