Unlocking Clean Growth through Carbon Capture and Storage

2017 European Parliament Hearing on CCS

On 23rd March 2017 (10:00-12:00), Lambert Van Nistelrooij MEP will host a high-level meeting to discuss the potential for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) to contribute towards meeting Europe's energy, climate and industrial goals.

Through a series of moderated panel discussions, the event will explore the role of CCS in reducing Europe's carbon dioxide emissions, unlocking clean growth and sustainable jobs through CCS, and consider the respective roles of the EU and Member States in unlocking innovation and accelerating progress on CCS.

Participation is expected from MEPs across the poltical spectrum alongside high profile speakers from a range of organisations and institutions, including (tbc) the European Commision, the Norwegian Government, the International Energy Agency (IEA), the European Trade Union Congress (ETUC), the Port of Rotterdam, HeidelbergCement, Gassnova, ZEP, and Bellona Europa.

Hosted by Lambert Van Nistelrooij MEP, the event is being held in partnership with the European Zero Emission Technology and Innovation Platform (ZEP), the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, the International Energy Agency, and Gassnova, the state-owned company responsible for CCS in Norway.

The deadline for registration is 13th of March, however places are limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis.
