LYSAKER, Norway – The ALIGN-CCUS project consortium has secured nearly €15 million ($17.4 million) of funding from the European ERA-NET ACT fund to research large-scale carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).

CCUS technology captures carbon dioxide (CO2) from large emitting sources, storing it permanently in the deep subsurface or using it for other purposes.

The consortium partners will focus on programs in Germany, the Netherlands, Romania, and the UK.

Dutch research instituteTNO is leading the three-year project, the goals of which include safe offshore CO2 storage.
