Setback for CCS inclusion in CDM

Dec 10 2008

Plans to allow organisations to earn credits for CCS under the clean development mechanism (CDM) have been dropped at the climate change talks in Poznan.

The proposal, led by Australia, was supported by a majority of representatives and the IEA but Brazil and a few other countries blocked the move. The decision will now be postponed until next year.

This effectively rules out its inclusion in the new climate change treaty which will be signed in Copenhagen next year.
