Assessment of current state, past experiences and potential for CCS deployment in the CEE region: Lithuania
Authors: Ervinas Škikūnas Darius Krulikovskis
This report was written as part of the Building momentum for the long-term CCS deployment in the CEE region project (CCS4CEE), which aims to renew the discussion on the long-term deployment of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies in Central Eastern Europe (CEE), leading to new policy developments and joint projects in this area.
Our objective with this report is to inform the readers and thus increase the level of understanding of the current state of CCS technologies and national framework associated with CCS in Lithuania (as of October 2021).
The first chapter focuses on issues such as CCS and CCU current state and past experiences in Lithuania and biggest emitters in the country.
The second chapter captures the CCU and CCS landscape in the target country, as per the Country Template guidance document (Theme 2, section 1). Background research and expert insights from targeted stakeholders are also presented in this part.
The last chapter explains the subject of public acceptance of CCS and CCU in Lithuania, which was mostly formed by statements of public officials, especially ones that overstated the negative aspects, thus causing the public to get agitated without even analysing any factual information, causing the overall awareness of the public on the topics of CCS and CCU to be limited at best and negatively skewed at worst.
