CO2GeoNet Open Forum - Key Messages

As the targets of the Paris Agreement are translated into actions by countries worldwide, the need for large-scale deployment of CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) will become even more apparent.

The 12th CO2GeoNet Open Forum focused on driving CCS towards implementation and the critical role that CO2 storage must play in climate change mitigation strategies to achieve crucial low carbon targets.

Below are some of the main messages that emerged during the CO2GeoNet Open Forum presentations and discussions with the audience:

  • No success without CCS 
  • How to break the current inertia and get things moving
  • Stable policy support is essential 
  • Bringing CCS to new regions of the developing world 
  • CCUS is only acceptable if it ends with “S” 
  • Learning by doing is essential: Pilot/small scale projects are part of the process
