CCS Wire

Fourteen organisations – including major utilities, equipment suppliers and oil & gas companies – have issued a joint statement calling on MEPs to adopted Amendment-500 (now re-cast as Compromise Amendment 16) as part of the Doyle Report to be adopted by the EP Environment Committee next Tuesday morning. If ultimately successful, the amendment will harness Europe’s Emissions Cap and Trading Scheme (ETS) to provide direct and specific public aid for CCS demonstration, with the objective of accelerating commercial availabilty of CCS and so enabling the start of its un-aided wide-spread deployment by 2020.
