1st Conference on CCS

The Conference was arranged in Warsaw on March 6-7 focusing on a road map for CCS in the Baltic Sea Region aiming at to clarify how joint regional solutions could lead to a rapid and more cost-effective implementation of carbon capture and storage projects with a specific view on regulatory issues and public acceptance. The findings of the conference was presented to the BASREC ministerial meeting in May 2012.
