EC opens consultation on EU Action Plan on restoring sustainable carbon cycles
On 9 September 2021, the European Commission opened a public consultation on its forthcoming Action Plan on restoring sustainable carbon cycles. The initiative aims to develop a long-term vision for sustainable carbon cycles including capture, storage, and use of CO2 in a climate-neutral EU economy, and to kick-start the development of technological and nature-based solutions. The Action Plan, a Commission Communication, is scheduled for December 2021. The Communication will address how to foster the research and deployment of technological solutions and how to create a competitive market for the industrial capture, storage, and use of carbon. The Innovation Fund, LIFE projects and Horizon Europe are important tools to support the early development of these technologies.
The consultation is open until 7 October. It can be accessed here:
