Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum Reaches Substantial Agreement on Carbon Capture and Storage Technology Issues

In a press release issued today, the Department of Energy and Climate Change announced that the London Conference of the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) had concluded their meeting with agreement on a number of issues related to Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)Technology.

The primary conclusions of the conference are cited as:

“- agreement that more than 20 industrial scale CCS demonstrations could be needed by 2020, including in developing countries, with knowledge sharing between projects.

– support for capacity building to enable developing countries to host demonstrations and for rapid CCS deployment once it’s proven.

– the strongest signal yet, from developed and developing countries alike, that CCS must be incentivised as part of a global climate deal in Copenhagen this December.”
