The EU has described CO2 capture and storage (CCS) technologies “key” to reaching our climate targets and limiting the increase in global temperatures to below 1.5˚C, particularly for industries that are difficult to decarbonise, such as cement and pulp and paper. However, there are still several barriers that need to be addressed for CCS to fulfil its potential – and this will require efforts from various sectors.
In line with this, on behalf of the ACCSESS project, Hafslund Oslo Celsio and SINTEF are inviting policymakers and representatives from European cities and industries to a day of open conversations about the challenges and opportunities associated with curbing industrial CO2 emissions, and how they relate to climate adaptation and mitigation plans for European cities.
This Open Oslo Event is the first of four open events to be organised by ACCSESS, and is a registered Sustainable Energy Day under this year’s European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW).
In addition to numerous talks, the event will feature two panel discussions with project stakeholders: the first addressing the curbing of CO2 emissions and the second exploring how cities’ climate plans can relate to industrial decarbonisation. Participants are also invited on an exciting tour of Hafslund Oslo Celsio’s waste-to-energy plant at Klemetsrud, Norway, where the mobile test rig is currently being modified to test CO2 capture using the CO2 Solutions Technology by Saipem as part of the project.
More information about ACCSESS’ activities, which aim to develop cost-efficient and flexible CCS technologies and value chains, can be found on this website.
This hybrid event will be held both at the Delegation of the European Union to Norway (Klingenberggaten 7A, 0101 Oslo) and online on 22 September 2022. Participation is free of charge, and you do not need to have any prior knowledge of or plans for CCS to attend. The event is intended to be a platform for initiating discussions on the potential of CCS to contribute to European urban climate-neutral action plans, and anyone interested is welcome to join either online or in person.
