EU CO2 Storage Directive
This Directive establishes a legal framework for the environmentally safe geological storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) "to contribute to the fight against climate change. The purpose of environmentally safe geological storage of CO2 is permanent containment of CO2 in such a way as to prevent and, where this is not possible, eliminate as far as possible negative effects and any risk to the environment and human health" (article 2).
