WCA CEO statement as Sec. Perry visits Petra Nova CCS project

13th Apr 2017

"It's encouraging to see Secretary Perry visiting the Petra Nova facility. The Petra Nova CCS project is a huge step for a low emissions future and we hope it will lead to further support and deployment of the technology- CCS needs support at global and national levels. More investment in CCS today will ensure that more countries can meet their growing energy needs and simultaneously reduce global emissions.

Petra Nova continues the pathway of demonstrating CCS at scale and bringing costs down. As he begins to set his priorities at the Department of Energy, we encourage Secretary Perry to support CCS research and development as CCS development and deployment is critical to meeting the 2 degrees climate target.
