Interview: Light at the end of the tunnel for carbon capture and storage?

The full chain of carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) could be operational in Europe around 2025, says Peter van Os, leader of a project aiming to remove the barriers to the deployment of the technology. It is now a matter of providing incentives for its uptake. Van Os talks to ENDS about the role of carbon capture decarbonising Europe’s industrial regions and the “enormous” storage capacity in empty gas fields.
