Reducing Industrial Carbon Emissions Carbon capture, utilisation, and storage technologies

24 November 2021 | 11:00 CET | Online and On-Demand


Description and Scope

The EU recently set unprecedented goals in terms of reducing emissions (-55% by 2030, climate neutrality by 2050). Solutions such as carbon capture, utilisation and storage, or "CCUS", involve capturing CO2 from industrial plants or installations, transporting it to designated sites, and injecting it into geological formations, making it extremely relevant to face this ambitious, but necessary challenge.

This webinar will share some of the latest advances in CCUS. The research project cluster on Better Carbon Capture for Industrial Emissions is formed by three EU-funded projects: CLEANKER, REALISE CCUS, and C4U, and are advancing the state of the art and reducing emissions from industrial plants directly focussing on three different sectors: cement, refineries and steel.

Experts from these EU-backed projects will showcase the technological approaches, their financial feasibility, and how their approaches in implementing CCUS have shown up to 90% reduction in CO2 emissions in certain plants. Policy aspects that have an effect on the implementation of CCUS will be discussed.

Who should attend

The webinar is open to all, but the following are highly encouraged to attend, particularly:

  • Iron and steel, oil refining, cement production industry representatives
  • Policy makers and actors interested in environmental policies for industry
  • Researchers working on carbon capture, utilisation and storage technologies
  • Other heavy industry representatives
