Carbon Capture and Storage Program final results seminar 13.10.



Carbon Capture and Storage Program (CCSP) – Final results seminar

Thursday 13th October at Itämerenkatu 11-13, Helsinki

You are warmly welcome to the final seminar of the Finnish Carbon Capture and Storage R&D Program (CCSP). The seminar will present the main results from the 5-year long Finnish R&D program. (More information about CCSP:

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is one of the technologies needed for cost-effectively reducing CO2 emissions to meet the ambitious climate mitigation  targets of the Paris climate agreement. According to the analyses done in CCSP, CCS would be a cost-effective method also for Finland: Having CCS in the technology portfolio reduces the emission reduction costs with more than 50% for reaching the required emission cuts by 2050 in comparison to not having CCS as an option.

The seminar gives an excellent opportunity for interested companies and organizations to get first-hand information about CCS, the R&D work done in the program, as well as the relevance of CCS for Finland and Finnish companies.

The seminar is free of charge and open for anyone interested. The language for the seminar is English, except for the final session, “Role of CCS in Finland”, which will be held in Finnish.

Registration is open until 29th of September
