Video: Recording: Webinar: Negative emissions and net zero: how do technologies for carbon dioxide removal measure up? (CCUS Projects Network)
"The European Union is committed to keeping the average temperature rise to well below 2°C, preferably closer to 1.5°C, which according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) requires bringing global GHG emissions to net zero by 2050. The IPCC scenarios show that alongside implementing other climate mitigation policies it is essential to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, known as carbon dioxide removal (CDR) which includes negative emission technologies (NETs). Various options are being reviewed and discussed, including both nature-based solutions and CCS-based solutions. The most common CCS-related solutions identified are direct air carbon capture and storage (DACCS) and CCS on energy production from biomass (BECCS). This event will discuss policy mechanisms for the delivery of CDR, storage longevity and the role of offsetting, and present some real project examples and the potential range of biogenic sources that combined with CCS can enable CDR."
