Leading French scientist, Dr Isabelle Czernichowski-Lauriol, highlights the importance of TEN-E recognition of CO2 storage to be in line with the objectives of the EU Green Deal.
Dr Isabelle Czernichowski-Lauriol, PhD in Geosciences, said: “CO2 Capture and Storage is the geological carbon sink, i.e. “putting back” the carbon into the subsurface from which it was extracted. It is definitely needed, in addition to terrestrial (forests and soils) and oceanic carbon sinks, in order to reduce incompressible residual CO2 emissions and reach net-zero by 2050. I strongly recommend to include the CO2 storage element in the TEN-E tool in order to be in line with the objectives of the EU Green Deal.”
