About the Network

The European CCS Demonstration Project Network was established in 2009 by the European Commission to accelerate the deployment of safe, large-scale and commercially viable CCS projects.  To achieve this goal, this community of leading industrial-scale, and fully integrated, demonstration projects is committed to sharing knowledge and experiences. The successful operation of these demonstration projects is seen as crucial for enabling the widespread commercial application of near zero emission power plants or industrial installations by 2020 to allow Europe to reach its environmental objectives, stimulate job creation, and generate a sustainable economic and industrial base.

Held to coincide with the Boundary Dam project launch, the event was attended by an audience of Parliamentarians and EP staff representing some of the key countries where CCS could play an important role: including the UK, Romania, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland. Attendees were briefed on progress achieved in Canada, the vital importance of ROAD Project in the Netherlands, and the role played by public engagement in acceptance of the technology.
