Workshop: CO2 Capture and Sequestration (CCS) in Future International R & D Programmes

17. Nov 2004
WKO - Wirtschaftskammer Österreich, Rudolf Sallinger Saal
Vienna, AT

Initiation of a discussion process concerning the role of CCS in future RTD programmes in general and the presentation of realised (and/or planned) projects in particular as well as challenges of the deployment of CCS technologies.

Content Description

Zero Emission Technologies (ZET) in combination with carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) received in the last years major attention as future green house gas mitigation technology in several international R&D positions, programmes, and projects.

Up to now industrial CCS projects were mainly realised in oil/gas exporting countries either in order to enhance oil and gas recoveries (EOR and EGR) or to achieve the necessary gas export qualities (f. ex. in case of the Sleipner project). The deployment of CCS as CO2 mitigation technology is still in the RTD phase involving significant public RTD funds.

Energysystems of Tomorrow is an R&D-Programme of the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) in the field of Sustainable Energy and is part of the Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development. The programme focuses on medium to short term developments. However, it also supports the ongoing discussion process about topics of strategic interest, even within a longer time horizon.

The goal of this workshop is the initiation of a discussion process concerning the role of CCS in future RTD programmes in general and the presentation of realised (and/or planned) projects in particular. Special focus is also given to the challenges of the deployment of CCS technologies (like safety aspects and long-term monitoring) and for the economic implementation in competitive markets.
