    Globalizing CCUS Deployments

    Presentation Carbon Management/Decarbonization

    Scaling up CCUS to play a material role in the fight against climate means it needs to go global. Its footprint will then touch multiple geographies, with different government policy regimes, industrial settings, and operating and financing partners. What does it take to leverage the experiences to date in implementing CCUS to expand into new countries and what is the number one challenge? What is the relative importance of CO2 sources, CO2 storage, policy support, demand for decarbonization, cost effective technology, carbon price, and commercial models to enable the globalization of CCUS deployment? Commercially, what will it take to drive CCUS deployment—financing, especially in developing countries, policy support, carbon prices, and mechanisms?
