Carbon Capture and Storage is increasingly viewed as one of the most significant ways of dealing with green house gas emissions. Critical to realising its potential will be the design of effective legal regimes at national and international level that can handle effectively the challenges raised but without stifling a new technology of potential great public benefit. These include long-term liability for storage, regulation of transport, the treatment of stored carbon under emissions trading regimes, issues of property ownership, and increasingly the sensitivities of handling the public engagement and perception. With the first demonstration plants on the horizon, the last few years have already seen some remarkable legal developments, particularly in Australia, the European Union, and the United States. This important book brings together some of the world's leading practitioners and scholars working in the field to provide a critical assessment of progress to date. Chapters cover developments in international law, as well as the European Union, North America, and Australia, with perspectives from China and India. Finance and questions of public perception and participation receive particular attention. Throughout the study, authors consider significant trends, critically evaluate progress to date, and identify key legal gaps and obstacles that still need to be addressed. Carbon Capture and Storage will be essential reading for lawyers, policy-makers, and decision-makers in industry involved in climate change policy and law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...this is a valuable volume containing many important contributions. It should be read by all those interested in or engaged by the need to develop and implement legal and regulatory approaches to CCS. -- Nigel Bankes * The Yearbook of Polar Law IV *
...this volume offers a focused, well-organised overview of the main legal and policy-related issues that confront those seeking a successful future deployment of CCS in the fight against climate change. Making due allowances for differential applications that will inevitably arise in cross-jurisdictional projects such as this, the editors have brought together a coherent collection of considerable merit. In a field of law where there is still a relative paucity of scholarly analysis, this volume is to be welcomed. -- Mark Stallworthy * Journal of Environmental Law, 24:3 *
...the book presents a comprehensive reference resource on the current state of research and development of legal and regulatory issues related to CCS...The book is highly recommended for a range of readers; including lawyers, policy-makers and decision-makers in industry involved in climate change policy and law. -- S. Bouzalakos * Oil, Gas & Energy Law Intelligence, Volume 10 - Issue 5 *
...a comprehensive analysis of numerous topical aspects of CCS regulation...the breadth of the contributions together with the sharp analysis of thought provoking qualities of several chapters make the book a rewarding read. -- David Langlet * Carbon and Climate Law Review, Volume 2 *
The editors of the book under review have compiled a comprehensive work which covers most aspects of CCS, ranging from its scientific and technical framework to the regulatory regime for CCS in general; and from the transportation and underground storage of CO2 to the status of CCS in emerging economies and its public perception. Aside from this compelling coverage, all chapters have been written by experts and decision-makers in the field of CCS, who, through their practical experience, are able to provide insights into details that can make a decisive difference to any practitioner. The collection is highly valuable not only for those who are already involved in CCS and the business side of climate change, but also for those who are interested in gaining a first overview. It provides a comprehensive account of the topics that still need to be debated and resolved on the way to implementing CCS, as well as the status of CCS in several countries, including emerging economies. It also conveys the practical knowledge and experience of people who are closely involved in the development and implementation of the technology, and as such it offers enough depth and detail to be a useful guide to CCS practitioners. -- Dr Maximilian Uibeleisen, L.L.M. * Climate Law *
...an insightful addition to the global dialogue on establishing effective national and international regimes for the implementation of CCS projects. This book comprises a interesting and diverse collection of multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional perspectives on the legal and regulatory issues surrounding CCS projects. The publishers urge that this book is essential reading for all lawyers, policy-makers and decision-makers involved in climate change policy law; I strongly concur. -- Dr Nicola Swayne * Environmental Liability, Volume 19, Issue 5 *
