CCS Workshop 2007
Introduction: CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) is being evaluated as a technology to secure the certain amount of CO2 reduction and also the one which effect will be realistic after Kyoto protocol. IPCC Special Report on Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage was submitted on September 2005 and the argument of the CDM utilizing CCS was done in first COP (11) after Kyoto protocol launched, MOP1 (the rule discussion for a setup of a goal). This workshop will make an opportunity to appeal more for dealing with the CCS technology in Japan.
