The Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) Projects Network will have its Hydrogen and its relation to CCUS event on October 12th from 14:00 – 17:00 CEST. The seminar will explore the characteristics of hydrogen and what makes it attractive as an energy resource for the decarbonization of Europe. You can register for the event here.
It can be used as a fuel, an energy carrier, or as feedstock and can be easily transported and stored. The seminar will also look into the dedicated Hydrogen Strategy that was adopted from the European Commission in 2020.
CCUS Projects Network’s speakers will follow how hydrogen and carbon capture and storage or carbon capture utilization and storage are interconnected and complement each other. Right now most hydrogen is produced from natural gas so the process results in emissions. CCS technologies could be used to take care of those emissions.
Green hydrogen production is a zero-emissions alternative to hydrogen production as it uses renewable energy. With the push for renewables, H2 production based on water electrolysis using renewable electricity is expected to become dominant and CCS or CCUS can be a stepping stone until that happens.
CCUS Projects Network is a non for profit organization with funding support from the European Commission that shares knowledge and learning of the carbon capture and storage and carbon capture utilization and storage space. Its goal is to drive forward the delivery and deployment of carbon capture, enabling Europe’s member states to reduce emissions from industry, electricity, transport, and heat.
Similar events are building the network of the organization and help share knowledge and opportunities that are emerging in this newly developed industry. They are critical for fostering education and innovation that could shape the future path of development and enable faster deployment of those technologies around the world.
