CO2GeoNet was invited to an international CCUS roundtable to share CO2GeoNet experience in knowledge sharing activities.

The roundtable was titled "strengthening international collaboration on carbon capture use and storage" and took place from 13 - 14 February 2019 in Washington, D.C..

The event was co-hosted by the center for climate and energy solutions (c2es) and the research institute of innovative technology for the earth (RITE).


The focus of the workshop was to explore opportunities to enhance international collaboration in CCUS ahead of G20. G20 will be hosted by Japan later this year. 

The roundtable was attended by representatives from national governments, multilateral development banks, leading energy and finance companies, influential think tanks, and other NGOs.

The event was very positive, emphasising the benefits of sharing practical lessons learned in order to accelerate CCUS towards deployment - both in terms of technical learnings from first mover projects and experience in building relationships with stakeholders.

Potential  financing mechanisms for innovative low carbon projects were also discussed.

The role for CCUS as one of the key technologies in meeting the Paris Agreement climate targets was reiterated
