CCS Wire

Four major UK environmental groups, Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, RSPB and WWF, recently made a “Joint Statement on Coal and Carbon Capture & Storage” placing five key demands on the UK government:

  • focus on renewables and energy efficiency;
  • introduce greenhouse gas emissions standards;
  • introduce emission standards for existing plants from 2020;
  • keep a clear focus in any CCS demonstration programme;
  • and introduce strong legislation on CO2 storage and transport.

The full statement is available on the Greenpeace page here.
