Why CCS Matters

Dr. Erika Palfi, the course organiser, emphasises the crucial role of CCS in mitigating climate change: "The Intergovernmental Panel on climate Change has unequivocally stated that CCS is indispensable in our efforts to limit global warming to 1.5°C. However, the urgency of the situation requires us to rapidly expand our CCS infrastructure, which in turn necessitates equipping people worldwide with the necessary knowledge and skills. CCS offers a vast array of applications; it not only prevents carbon dioxide emissions in industries from reaching the atmosphere but also contributes to removing existing atmospheric carbon dioxide. It's a cornerstone in our climate mitigation strategy, offering both environmental benefits and economic prospects."
