Accelerating Low Carbon Industrial Growth through CCUS

Funding period:



Peter Van Os


The multi-partner ALIGN-CCUS project unites science and industry in a shared goal of transforming six European industrial regions into economically robust, low-carbon centres by 2025.

Our international partnership of 34 research institutes and industrial companies has secured European and national funding for six specific but interlinking areas of research into carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS).

Research results will be used to draw up blueprints to deliver CCUS in the industrial regions of Teesside and Grangemouth in the UK; Rotterdam in the Netherlands; North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany; Grenland in Norway; and Oltenia in Romania.

By helping to address specific issues faced by industry, we aim to support the quick and cost-effective deployment of CCUS, enabling Europe’s industrial and power sectors to be part of a low-carbon future while remaining economically viable.
