Authors: Luciana Miu, Diana Nazare, Mihnea Cătuți, Radu Dudău, Constantin Postoiu, Mihai Bălan
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 Romania (as of October 2021).
Chapter one provides a summary of CCS and CCU current state and past experiences in Romania. This part gives an overview of relevant domestic sectors, geological potential for CCS, planned and implemented projects, as well as a brief description of legal framework for CCS deployment in Romania.
The next chapter presents the outlook for CCU and CCS in Romania. It is supported by the stakeholder engagement conducted as part of Work Package 3, focusing on the current status of CCU/CCS in Romania as perceived by stakeholders, as well as recommendations for accelerating deployment of CCU and CCS technologies in Romania and the CEE region.
This is followed by chapter three, which focuses on public perception on CCU and CCS, environmental issues and public discourse on CCS in Romanian media.
The report also includes charts and tables with examples illustrating the qualitative results of the research on CCS.
