Carbon Capture and Storage in Southern Africa
"In April 2010, a series of workshops on CO2 capture and storage were held in Botswana, Mozambique and Namibia, attended by a total of about 100 participants. The objectives of the workshops were to provide a thorough introduction to CCS to participants from relevant public, private and academic organizations and to explore the potential rationale, possibilities and capacity needs in each of the three countries. For the project, the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) partnered with EECG Consultants (Botswana), the Eduardo Mondlane University (Mozambique) and the Desert Research Foundation of Namibia. This report reports on the workshops, provides information on the situation with regard to CCS in Botswana, Mozambique and Namibia, and gives recommendations for follow-up work."
