Welcome to a seminar at the forefront of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) development. Meet company leaders, politicians, NGO:s and researchers who will discuss the latest in this fast-moving field.
Seminar and networking in Brussels for permanent removals: How can BECCS contribute to your net-zero target?
The EU and many private sector companies will rely on permanent removals to meet their net-zero targets. Given the growing importance of permanent removals, the EU is progressing a number of initiatives in this area, including establishing a framework for carbon removal certificates and developing a strategy on industrial carbon management.
In this context, Stockholm Exergi’s investment in BECCS represents an exciting development in net-zero enabling solutions and the bioeconomy.
This seminar will highlight the emerging market demand for carbon removal units, discuss how permanent removals can support the achievement of net-zero targets, increase your knowledge of BECCS and place the technology in a larger European context.
After the seminar you are invited to mingle with the participants.
