Norway has ratified the Paris climate agreement, and the government has formulated a mitigation strategy to reduce climate gas emissions by 40 % (rel. 1990) before 2030. This is in line with EU targets. The goal is to achieve actual emission cuts in Norway, not mainly through international quotas. How are we going to manage large reductions fast and effectively, in ways that are the most suitable for the typical Norwegian industrial CO2-sources? Is storage of CO2 a feasible solution? Who will ensure low risk and facilitate upscaling and infrastructure? 


13:15 Do we need CCS? Norwegian climate targets, negative emissions and carbon storage. The key role of CCS demand.
