EU Climate Law

A better EU climate law would be more ambitious, separate reduction and mitigation targets and not ignore the most promising carbon sink solution.

To tackle the climate crisis, the EU urgently needs not only ambitious reduction targets but also a stringent carbon sink strategy. Without a massive build-up of carbon sinks, it is impossible to reach climate neutrality by 2050. It is, therefore, unfortunate that the EU underestimates the role of pyrogenic carbon capture and storage (PyCCS), the most promising short-term carbon-sink solution. PyCCS is technology ready with no negative side-effects and could be scaled within the next decade.
