CCS: the pathway to decarbonise European industry

What is Carbon Capture and Storage?

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology has the sole purpose of curbing climate change by reducing the volume of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions released into the atmosphere or withdrawing those already within it. 

Emissions from industrial processes and remaining fossil fuel power plants must be captured and transported for permanent storage in deep geological formations, to be supplemented by CO2 captured directly from the air.

CCS Europe: Who we are

CCS Europe is an advocacy and communications body supported by technology providers, project developers, industry and environmental NGOs, who share a commitment to achieve significant reductions in CO2 emissions.

CCS Europe’s objective is to secure recognition of the urgent need to deploy carbon capture technologies to curb CO2 emissions from industrial sources and reduce CO2 already within the atmosphere.
