It is with much enthusiasm that I welcome the publication of this Special Report on the Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS). Dirk Uwer and Daniel Zimmer, both renowned experts in this highly specialised area, provide a concise overview of the complex regulatory framework for CCUS projects and technologies. Based on thorough research, their report is an important contribution to fostering the understanding of CCUS as part of climate change mitigation.

- Prof. Ekkehard Hofmann, Chair of Environmental Law, University of Trier

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a quickly evolving next generation technology which mitigates climate change by capturing and storing carbon dioxide (CO2) before it is released into the atmosphere. CCS technology reduces carbon emissions so plays an essential role in meeting global and regional temperature targets. This Special Report explores the most recent regulatory, political and economic trends and themes arising from CCS technologies and projects. 

This Special Report will give readers a firm grasp of the political and regulatory landscape for CCS technologies and projects from both a legal and business perspective. Key sections of the report include:

  • Overview on CCS technologies, technical advances and challenges
  • Economics of CCS technologies and projects
  • Public funding frameworks and programs 
  • CCS strategies and model projects
  • International and national regulatory frameworks.

Pilot CCS projects are successfully proliferating and this Special Report provides the regulatory and political insights to succeed in the rapidly changing CCS market. It will be an invaluable resource for in-house counsel, senior managers, engineers, consultants, researchers and policy makers with an interest in the energy sector and CCS technologies and projects.
