Seven years ago, the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) proposed a pathway for the global reduction of CO2 emissions, to limit the expected temperature increase to 2, ideally 1.5 °C, by the end of this century.

In its new position paper our member VITO analysis the existing CO2 reduction strategies, which are the ones to focus on, and how Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU)-based value chains contribute to mitigating climate change.

The position paper focuses on:

  • The CO2 reduction strategy we should focus on
  • The contribution of CCU-based value chains to mitigating climate change

In this study, VITO concludes that the positioning of CCU within the Sustainable Transition Landscape not only rests on many, different pillars but also on global trends and the dynamic nature of its boundary conditions.
