The Global Status of CCS: Is US Technology Leadership at Risk?

January 28 @ 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center and the Global CCS Institute on Monday, January 28, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., for The Global Status of CCS: US Technology Leadership at Risk?

As the clock is ticking to reduce carbon emissions and avert destructive climate change, Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), a set of technologies that prevents carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere by capturing and storing them securely underground, is garnering increased attention. Historically, the US has exercised leadership in CCS innovation and deployment, and many projects to date have been located within its borders. But in China, Europe, and the Middle East, governments and companies are accelerating support and investment for innovative technology applications and have built a considerable portfolio of projects in development.

Is the US at risk of losing technological leadership in carbon capture and storage? Or will the global race to reduce emissions renew and revitalize America’s innovative edge?

Please join us for this special US launch of the Global CCS Institute’s signature publication, The Global Status of CCS, which was first presented at COP24 in Katowice, Poland. A panel of experts will discuss the state of the global industry, the geopolitics of technology leadership, and the role of global carbon capture technology development, deployment and transfer in meeting shared climate challenges.

A networking reception will take place following the panel discussion, from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.
