Webinar: Carbon Dioxide Removal options in the National Long-term Strategies of EU Member States
Achieving climate neutrality in the EU requires emission removals, which are tightly linked to the land-use, land-use change, and forestry (LULUCF) sector. Emerging technological solutions, e.g., carbon-capture and storage (CCS) and carbon-capture and utilization (CCU), as well as technological removal options such as direct air capture (DAC) and biotechnology and carbon capture (BECCS) are also being sought to remove emissions. But how much importance do EU Member States assign to the LULUCF sector and to what extent do they explore its contribution to reaching climate neutrality?
This webinar presented and discussed the findings of a report by SEI Tallinn. The analysis, conducted as part of the Climate Recon 2050 project, analyses the role of the LULUCF sector in Member States’ Long-Term Strategies (LTSs). Although the majority of LTSs published so far address the topic, the extent to which countries with significant potential in the sector explore its contribution to climate neutrality varies, even among Member States with significant needs for modernization of their existing legacy networks.
