  • Europe is “behind” North America in developing carbon removal disclosure technologies, but French-German scepticism seems to be waning according to stakeholders at an event on Wednesday (20 July) in Paris, attended by EURACTIV.
  • Carbon neutrality must be reached in the EU by 2050, according to bloc targets and in terms of carbon capture and storage, the Commission has set the target of 310 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent per year (MteqCO2/year) for land-based storage by 2030.
  • Nordic countries could be the frontrunners in developing shared transport and stocking facilities – one of Europe’s main issues.
