Carbon Storage Dialogues:
#5 Development of CCS in societal perspective

We look back at a successful and well-attended fifth edition of the Carbon Storage Dialogues. We would like to thank all our participants, speakers and panelists for being there, for sharing their knowledge and networks and helping us to make the dialogues inspiring and insightful again.

Development of CCS in societal perspective

Now that (most) technical and financial barriers have been overcome, the social perspective on CCS becomes even more relevant. Especially in light of the fact that CCS is no longer seen as a temporary option for heavy industry, but negative emissions can also be achieved with carbon removal in the long term. For this reason, the theme of this 5th edition of the Carbon Storage Dialogues was: ‘Development of CCS in a social perspective.’
On this page you will find the presentations of our keynote speakers. The Carbon Storage Dialogues were hosted in English, which is why all presentations are in English.
