The International Energy Agency (IEA) kicked off on Wednesday a workshop to discuss opportunities to accelerate commercial deployment of carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) as a key emissions mitigation technology.
The European Commission’s proposed ban on single-use plastics, announced on May 28, is an archetypal European environmental initiative: it is a bold measure to improve our planet, and it responds to rising public concerns about an alarming pollution problem. It comes a fortnight after the Commission’s third Mobility Package, setting targets for heavy-duty vehicle emissions, and just days after two big political environmental events: the annual EU Green Week, and the Clean Energy Ministerial in Copenhagen and Malmö.
