Report Launch: Carbon Capture and Storage in the decisive decade for decarbonisation – the case for Asia

Date: Monday 13th December 2021
3:00 pm – 5:00 pm HKT/SGT , 4:00 pm-6:00 pm JST/KST , 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm AEDT

A growing number of governments and companies are putting significant stock in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) to underpin their transition plans and bridge emissions gaps to reach net zero. CCS processes involve capturing carbon dioxide emissions from power generation or industrial production, transporting it and permanently storing it underground.

In the decisive decade for decarbonisation, the prospect of CCS deployment has become a discussion of critical importance. To validate whether such capacity projections for 2050 are plausible in the Asian context, AIGCC commissioned Wood Mackenzie to assess the feasibility of CCS deployment, looking into its cost competitiveness to alternate technologies, policy and regulatory support and storage availability, to assess the competitiveness of CCS in the power generation and steel sectors of China, India, Japan and South Korea, AIGCC complements with further discussions on other obstacles and challenges to the effectiveness of CCS deployment including high operational costs, complex technical challenges and a myriad of environmental risks and social opposition etc.

An expert panel of speakers are invited to contribute to the discussion with remarks following the report launch as detailed below. The report will be launched as a side event to China SIF Annual Conference 2021.  The webinar will be conducted in English with simultaneous interpretation services for Mandarin speakers.
