Net-Zero is not Zero. Public & private decarbonization initiatives incorporate carbon capture, utilization & sequestration (CCUS) into their pathways. The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 provides significant tax benefits to permanent carbon sequestration & net zero pledges by corporations typically rely on some form of CCUS in the future. Yet CCUS technology is still in its infancy, the capital required to move the industry to scale is enormous, & sceptics perceive a lack of transparency & that its use could diminish ambitions to transition away from fossil fuels. Our panel of experts will discuss the status, prospects & challenges of CCUS.
