|Sustainability Notebooks nº1. Carbon neutrality: situation and perspectives|
BBVA OpenMind publishes its first Sustainability Notebook and dedicates it to "Carbon neutrality: situation and perspectives". This issue includes an interview with the president of PTECO2, Luis Díaz Fernández, speaking about the fundamental role of Carbon Capture, transportation, Utilization and Storage technologies (CCUS, tecnologías CAUC in SpaCAUC technologies, CCUS in English) to achieve this Carbon Neutrality and even negative emissions.
Sustainability should be a key component of every process, safeguarding resources and reserves for future generations. This book shows how a responsible use of resources is possible, offering valid technological alternatives to fight climate change. We offer current technologies and valid methods for a wide range of activities: teaching, investigation, work, business and even daily life. We encourage all our readers to join us and become part of the solution to climate change, rather than the problem. After reading this book, we are certain that you will find justified reasons to start your own personal and social awareness campaign in favour of these effective technologies against climate change.
|The Global Status of CCS: 2014|
The Global CCS Institute is pleased to announce the release of their Global Status of CCS: 2014 report. The report provides a detailed overview of the current status of large-scale CCS projects worldwide, finding that 2014 has been a pivotal year for CCS.

|Deployment of CCS in the cement industry|
A survey by the International Energy Agency Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG) finds that the majority of respondents in the cement industry think that CCS is relevant to them and are aware of research projects, with half involved in CCS activities.
|The case for urgent action on CCS in Europe|
CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) will play a critical role in meeting Europe’s energy, climate and societal goals, but its demonstration is essential to achieve commercial availability and public support, and to allow it to be widely applied “from around 2030 onwards”. CCS has reached a ‘tipping point’ in Europe and urgent action is needed at EU and Member State level to deliver a sufficient set of demonstration projects.
|CO2 Capture and Storage: Recommendations for transitional measures to drive deployment in Europe|
In order to identify how low-carbon technologies can decarbonise European power most cost-effectively in the horizon to 2050, the Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) has developed a model based on an existing model from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and linked to the Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM).
|Carbon capture and storage in Europe - EASAC policy report 20|
This report records the findings of an EASAC study to evaluate the challenges of CCS development in Europe, to make recommendations on how those challenges may be addressed, and to consider the contribution that CCS may reasonably be expected to make over the period to 2050.
|Capturing and storing CO2. The hard facts behind CCS|
This leaflet from ZEP shows CCS as an esential part of the solutions needed to reach an important CO2 emissions reduction.
|The costs of CO2 Capture|
In this study, the best estimates for new power plants with CO2 capture in Europe, based on new and updated data, provided by industry members and ZEP users are collected. The level electric cost and expenses for the marketing of new power plants with CO2 capture to start operating from 2020 are estimated too.
|The costs of CO2 Transport|
In this study of the Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) the last and most comprehensive costs of transporting CO2 are analyzed. Experts have studied three methods of transportation with their detailed costs: pipeline transport, surface transport and maritime transport underground piping including preparation facilities and unloading.
|The costs of CO2 Storage|
In this new study of the Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) realistic assessments of CO2 storage costs are analyzed. As external data were scarce and a generic model could not be developed due to time and resources, the study was conducted with technical and economic understanding of ZEP members, through their research and experience in this field.
