CCS Europe Roadshow in Poland

April 09, 2024 at 7:00pm - April 10, 2024
Hotel Verte, Podwale 3/5, 00-252, Warsaw, Poland

The Industrial Carbon Management Strategy has set a clear signal for the EU industry and Member States that CCS technologies are necessary to achieve decarbonisation goals. But this is only the first step: many regulatory and financial barriers remain to be addressed in Member States to ensure scale-up of CCS. 

Poland has traditionally been cited as one of the countries where the green transition will require significant overhaul of the economy. CCS will also have a big role to play. So what’s needed, from the EU, industry and the Polish government itself, to ensure sufficient deployment?
