New EU project aims to accelerate CCUS roll-out


A new EU initiative to decarbonise industrial clusters in the Baltic and Mediterranean regions aims to meet the ‘challenging’ targets laid out in the Paris Agreement.

The project, CCUS ZEN (Zero Emission Network), is being coordinated by Norwegian research group SINTEF to accelerate the roll-out of carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) projects to reduce CO2 emissions across energy-intensive industries across Europe. 

According to the International Energy Agency, 14% of the total emissions reduction by 2060 must come from carbon capture and storage (CCS) to meet existing Paris Agreement goals. 

By building a network and sharing knowledge acquired through first-hand CCUS experience, SINTEF intends to accelerate development of CCUS projects and identify opportunities in CO2 transport and storage.
