The Industrial Carbon Management Strategy was a long-awaited signal for European industry and Member States that CCS technologies are key in the EU’s decarbonisation. However, it is just the first step: while support at the European level is welcome and appreciated, many barriers, financial and regulatory, remain to be addressed in Member States.

Denmark is a recent example of an EU Member State that went from zero to a leader in CCS in Europe. How did it happen? And what can the rest of the EU learn from Denmark?

Join our breakfast discussion with Danish policymakers who made it happen as well as academia and industry representatives to find out more.
