Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is gaining momentum throughout Europe and globally. The recent commitment from the EU for significant funding for CCS projects for 2009 is a positive step towards making carbon capture a commercial reality. 2009 brings new funding mechanisms, legislative updates, pilot projects, and developments in legal structures.

But what steps are being taken towards making CCS a commercial venture?

You are faced with significant hurdles to overcome before you can make CCS a full-scale commercial venture. Not only is there no clear legal framework for CCS activities, but the industry is still facing challenges with financing CCS projects, ensuring the technical feasibility of a running a fully integrated CCS project and the uncertainty surrounding legislation for CCS.

The 2nd Annual Carbon Capture, Storage & Transport Summit, a senior level forum that will tackle the most time-critical, commercial, technical, legislative and scientific challenges in carbon capture storage and transport implementation.

Join this industry-leading Carbon Capture, Storage and Transport Summit to:
- Gain critical insight into the development of regional, national and European policy: With insight from DECC, MPE and the European Commission
- Understand your options for onshore and offshore storage of CO2: Through insight into the Ketzin onshore injection project, Germany
