At the end of October 2019, Norway's two full-scale CO2 capture projects made further progress with the delivery of their final front-end engineering and design (FEED) studies to the Norwegian state-owned company, Gassnova.
Four ambitious carbon capture and storage (CCS) initiatives to recently join the CCUS Projects Network illustrate the range of opportunities for tackling Europe’s emissions from industry and power generation.
A cluster-based approach to industrial carbon capture and storage (CCS) in the UK is moving a step closer to deployment with two programmes being funded by the UK Government under the £170 million Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund Industrial Clusters Mission.
Find out more about the joint meeting of the CCUS Projects Network and the SET-plan CCS/CCU IWG9 (IMPACTS9 project), which brought together representatives of key industrial CCS and CCU projects under way across Europe.
