Experts gather in Tallinn to discuss the critical role of CCUS in reaching climate targets in Baltic countries
Industry leaders, academics, policy-makers and other leading experts will gather in Tallinn for the annual Baltic Carbon Forum on the 25-26 September.
Organised by the BASRECCS Network with support from the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Global CCS Institute, the conference will gather more than 50 experts for a regional discussion about the value of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) in achieving emission reduction targets as well as business opportunities linked to CCUS deployment.
Estonia has the most carbon-intensive economy in the OECD, this makes it an ideal host for this important conversation on the pivotal role of CCUS in the transition to a low-carbon economy. CCUS is the only clean technology capable of decarbonising power sector and major energy-intensive industries such as cement and steel.
This year, the Baltic Carbon Forum will feature the Deputy-Mayor of the city of Tallinn and representatives of the cities of Oslo and Helsinki. Expert speakers from the European Commission, HeidelbergCement Northern Europe, Equinor, Global CCS Institute and the environmental NGO Bellona will be presenting at the event.
The conference will end with a BASRECCS-ENOS knowledge-sharing workshop, organized by TalTech University, on how to enable onshore CO2 geological storage in the Baltic Sea Region.
