"EU needs CCS target" recommends Directive review

2015-02-03 10:56 by Anja Reitz

Bellona provided a response to the consultation in July 2014, and is now pleased to see that several of our points were taken aboard. Particularly welcome is the recommendations of an Emission Performance Standard (EPS), to set an emissions ceiling for fossil power plants that can in effect only be achieved with CCS. Bellona is a strong advocate for the establishment of an EU-wide EPS for CO2 from power plants and sees it as an important measure to prevent lock-in to the worst-polluting infrastructures and a catalyst for CCS deployment. Bellona commends the already existing EPS in countries, such as the US, Canada and the UK.
