Legal Uncertainties of Carbon Capture and Storage in the EU: The Netherlands as an Example

Avelien Haan-Kamminga, Martha Roggenkamp, Edwin Woerdman


The new EU Directive for the geological storage of CO2 aims at providing a legal framework for the development of CCS. However, the Directive does not remove all legal barriers and uncertainties. Capture, transport and storage of CO2 are covered by a large number of international, European and national regulations, resulting in various legal unknowns. These obstacles and uncertainties need to be removed in order to provide companies with a proper incentive to invest in CCS.
