Federal Labour supports CCS as a key technology

CO2CRC has welcomed the Federal Labour’s support for carbon capture and storage (CCS) as a key technology for reducing Australia’s carbon emissions while maintaining economic prosperity.

As one of Australia’s CCS research organisations, CO2CRC owns and operates the Otway National Research Facility in Victoria, one of Australia’s most advanced field scale CCUS research sites.

Through collaboration with internationally respected industry, academic and government partners, CO2CRC delivers innovative research, products and service designed to improve the cost-effectiveness and demonstrate the environmental integrity of CCUS technologies and methodologies.

Welcoming the support, Martin Ferguson, CO2CRC’s Chairman, said, “The Federal Labour Party’s support for methodologies for the generation of Australian carbon credit units from CCS projects acknowledges the value that CCS can bring in strengthening investment and jobs while reducing emissions.”

“Australia is well positioned to capitalise on utilising CCS to lower CO2 emissions with access to the latest CCS technologies and expertise. It also has some of the world’s best deep sedimentary basins in which to store carbon dioxide and a highly skilled and internationally recognised resources industry.”
