CCS technology

A public consultation on the Directive on carbon capture and storage (CCS) is launched today to help the European Commission prepare a review of the legislation. The online consultation will run until 16 July.

The Commission is required to review the 2009 CCS Directive and present a report to the European Parliament and Council by 31 March 2015.

The consultation is being undertaken by a contractor and will feed into an external evaluation of the Directive which began in April. The external evaluation will support the Commission in carrying out the review by providing the necessary background information and analysis.
