  • Project Description

    Six industrial clusters across five EU countries will be the focus of targeted full-chain CCUS research. Results will then feed into delivery blueprints for each region. Work will focus on: i) CO2 capture cost reduction, ii) large-scale CO2 transport, iii) CO2 storage, iv) developing the use of CO2 in energy storage and conversion and understanding and v) supporting social acceptance of CCUS.
