CCSA Webinar: CCUS reflections from COP26 and international CCUS developments
18 January @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The CCSA is holding a webinar on 18 January 2022 titled ‘CCUS reflections from COP26 and international CCUS developments’.
COP26 took place on the 1st – 13th November with a high profile for Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS), particularly on the necessity of industrial CCUS and negative emissions technologies to achieve global climate goals. The conference was considered a global success, with agreement on Article 6 as the main outcome. This sets out the principles to underpin a global carbon market, which remains technology neutral – sending a strong signal to all countries regarding the applicability of CCUS.
In addition, the political agreement to “phase down unabated coal” provides a clear invitation to countries to look at the opportunity to use CCUS and negative emissions technologies in their revised Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), which will need to be updated during 2022 and resubmitted to the next leaders’ summit in 2023.
Looking at CCUS developments more widely, many countries are now moving from development into deployment stage. However, the scale-up of CCUS around the world will need to increase by several orders of magnitude over the next decade to ensure we remain within the 1.5° limit.
The webinar provides an opportunity to hear from a number of organisations that attended COP26, their reflections on CCUS at COP and wider international CCUS developments.
