Dear ladies and gentlemen,
can you tell me if there are any EU documents (research or official documents) regarding the potential of CDR (carbon dioxide removal) / NET (negative emissions technologies) in the EU? I just found that the EU Reference Scenario 2016 assumes that some facilities will be equipped with CCS (carbon capture and storage), but I do not find any estimate about potential amounts of negative emissions which could be achieved per year (technical or financial potential).
Thank you and kind regards!

Dear M. Daniel W.,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).
We would suggest you to consult the following webpages for further information on your topics of interest:
• JRC webpage:[…]/carbon-capture-utilisation-and-storage
• SETIS magazine on CCS:[…]ilisation-and-storage-issue
• JRC publication:[…]n-fuel-production-synthesis
• European Commission’s proposal for the EU Long Term Strategy for a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate neutral economy:[…]/com_2018_733_analysis_in_support_en_0.pdf and[…]/2050_en#tab-0-1
• National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) :[…]/national-energy-climate-plans_en, that may contain information on emission removals.

We hope that this may be useful for you.

With kind regards,
