Carbon Capture and Storage Directive – Commission Adopts Report on Implementation

In the context of the State of the Energy Union report, the European Commission adopted in February the second implementation report on the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Directive, which lays down the rules for the safe geological storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the EU. The report concludes that the provisions of the CCS Directive have been consistently applied across the EU Member States during the reporting period from May 2013 to April 2016. Some Member States have advanced in their assessments of storage capacity, but further and more detailed assessments will be needed for any new projects.
