Gardner will also explain what CCS is and the technologies available and how these can be applied in the short to medium term. Finally, he will share the current plans in Europe for CCS technology development and deployment to achieve the vision held by the ZEP Technology Platform of Zero Emissions Fossil Fuel power plants by 2020.
