National Infrastructure Commission seeks evidence on carbon capture and storage technologies

It is inviting businesses, policymakers, scientists, academics, think tanks and investors to share their views on the potential of two technologies – direct air CCS and bioenergy with CCS

Norway submits plan for £2bn carbon capture and storage project

The government proposes to initially implement the carbon capture technology at Norcem’s cement factory in Brevik

US Government invests $72m in carbon capture technologies

Projects will develop technologies to capture CO2 generated as a by-product of manufacturing at industrial sites as well as develop new materials for use in direct air capture

EDF to help UK public sector transition to EVs

The agreement covers the development of infrastructure required for EV charging for central government, local authorities, hospitals and other public sector bodies

European surveillance body greenlights Norway’s €2.1bn carbon capture and storage project
