Workshop — Donetsk, Ukraine

Roundtable: Carbon Capture and Storage Perspectives in Ukraine


The International Energy Agency (IEA) is the leading international source of analysis and information on energy technology solutions for climate change. It has developed a series of technology roadmaps that identify key technology, policy, financing, and public awareness milestones for a suite of important climate change mitigation technologies. One of the most important technologies for international collaboration is carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS), which the IEA believes will need to deliver fully one-fifth of the necessary greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions to achieve global GHG stabilization by 2050.

Ukraine could become an important partner given its well-established coal industry, technical expertise and an interest in identifying new clean coal technologies. The IEA seeks to engage key stakeholders from the government, business and NGO sectors in Ukraine to facilitate discussions on global CCS development and possible CCS-related R&D in Ukraine.
