Strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage. Report 3: country studies The European Union

The European approach to CCS policy and legislation represents some of the most comprehensive proposals for the regulation of commercial CCS facilities in the world. The CCS Directive, in particular, is a significant step towards the widespread deployment of CCS technology. It endeavours to remove regulatory barriers to CCS projects and, in doing so, amends a number of general European legislative instruments.
