In this study it is documented that CCS together with enhanced energy efficiency and more renewable energy is the only strategy to ensure 50 to 80 percent reduction in global CO2 emissions. Read more.

Bellona has also published a Why CCS brochure (PDF).

The potential for CO2 capture

CCS has a large potential for reducing global CO2 emissions. In this study it is documented that a wide implementation of CCS can reduce global CO2 emissions by 33 percent. Read more.

Scenarios for CO2 emissions

Future CO2 emissions depends on which incentives and regulations that are implemented to reduce the emissions. Bellona has studied several scenarios for CO2 emissions onwards to 2050, and all scenarios shows that large reductions in CO2 emissions will require much stronger incentives that are considered by decision makers today.

Potential and barriers for renewable energy

The final solution to the climate challenge is renewable energy production. However, there are large barriers to large increase in renewable energy production. Read more.

CO2 storage

Safe CO2 storage is possible. Bellona has performed a study to investigate how safe CO2 storage can be performed. Read more.

Regulatory framework for CCS

A successful implementation of CCS requires that a regulatory framework for CCS is established. Bellona has identified what needs to be addressed in a new framework. Read more.


Bellona has suggested that CCS is included in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) under the Kyoto Protocol. This can lead to signifivatnt reductions in global CO2 emissions. Read more.
