This FEEM Working Paper by A. D’Aprile explores the main progress and deadlocks of Carbon Capture and Storage technology development in recent years, including economic constraints, regulation complexity, political and environmental factors.
“CCS technology still struggles to emerge as a sound low-carbon choice for governments and investors. Post-COP21 national and international efforts, as well as local policies and context, will play an increasingly critical role in the next phase of CCS deployment.”
