Austria has unveiled its national strategy for managing carbon emissions, paving the way for wider use of carbon capture technologies.

This plan, a collaboration between the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry for Climate Action, aims to tackle tough-to-reduce emissions and support Austria’s ambitious climate goals.

The strategy focuses on three key technologies: Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU), and Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR).

These technologies will address emissions from industries and other sectors that are difficult to eliminate entirely.

The plan unfolds in two phases. The first phase, currently underway, assesses Austria’s current carbon management situation and outlines steps to regulate the reduction of hard-to-cut emissions through these technologies. The second phase will focus on putting these plans into action.

This strategy positions Austria alongside other European leaders like France and Germany who have recently launched similar initiatives.
