CO2 Value Europe (The European think-and-do-tank dedicated to Carbon Capture and Utilisation) and the Carbon to Value Initiative (a 3-year multi-stakeholder program supporting carbontech innovation through accelerating partnerships between corporates and startups) will share global perspectives on the potential for CCUS technologies to reduce GHG emissions while creating new business opportunities.
This session will cover the scientific basis of CCUS as a climate solution, including some clarifications around terminology. The European context for CCU will be discussed, with a focus on projects, funding opportunities and policies. Other drivers for CCUS adoption will also be discussed, in particular from a market and business perspective, as well as the main barriers to CCUS business models. Finally, examples of innovative CCUS startups that could fit with large Minerals, Metals and Materials companies will be provided, alongside with key success factors to partner with startups.
