As we work towards a clean energy transition, global legal frameworks with high environmental protection standards are needed to encourage transnational carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) projects. The environmental stakes are critical in these developments, especially when it comes to protecting sensitive ecosystems such as marine habitats. So, is the London Protocol our answer to this challenge?
The London Protocol is an international treaty that regulates the disposal of products at sea, including CO2 streams. The treaty can allow these streams to be exported for CCS purposes (as stated in its 2009 amendment), but this possibility requires ad hoc acceptance by the treaty’s signatory countries—2/3 of the 53 of them must agree to make it happen.
We’re pleased to co-host a compelling presentation and discussion about the London Protocol and what it means for the future of CCS with the Global CCS Institute (GCCSI), and we’ll also be joined by industry experts from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and Equinor. Join us to:
