The EU is launching a new carbon capture project – CCUS ZEN (Zero Emission Network) that will aim to decarbonize industrial clusters in the Baltic and Mediterranean regions to tackle emissions.
CCUS ZEN was officially launched on the 1st of September at a two-day event hosted by one of the partners, Technip Energies. It is funded by the EU’s Horizon Europe initiative and will last for two and a half years.
The project includes 14 partners and around 60 network partners from eight EU member states.
The participating organizations work across the entire carbon capture utilization and storage value chain, including in the areas of infrastructure, ports, transport, ships, the pipeline industry, energy, and CO2 storage.
CCUS Zero Emission Network is coordinated by Norwegian research group SINTEF to accelerate the roll-out of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) projects across Europe.
One of its main goals is also to cultivate discussion and knowledge sharing between countries and regions further ahead in the CCUS journey and those with less experience.
