Carbon capture, utilization and storage
This session will explore Iceland’s approach to carbon capture, exploring the current progress of its plants. It will also focus on how Iceland’s experience can inform other countries looking to develop carbon management strategies.
According to International Energy Agency (IEA), more than six million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) must be captured each year to reach the UN’s climate change targets. If we are to reach net zero by mid-century, it’s no longer enough to simply mitigate emissions.
This session will explore the Iceland’s approach to carbon capture, exploring the current progress of its plants. it will also focus on how Iceland’s experience can inform other countries looking to develop carbon management strategies. It will showcase an insight into cutting edge thought leadership from two leading Icelandic enterprises, Carbfix and Carbon Recycling International.
Ahead of COP27
Ahead of COP27, climate dialogues must increasingly focus on the actionable and practicable policy for economically advantageous net-zero roadmaps. Without this, COP27 will fail to deliver a long-lasting momentum behind decarbonisation. As the recent IPCC report has reminded us, we cannot afford this.
This event forms part to our Pathway to COP27 series, which seeks to provoke discussion on the underrepresented or misrepresented elements of the debate on the transition to net-zero.
