The H2020 CCUS Strategy project, coordinated by BRGM, will end in summer 2022. A one-day information and dissemination event will be held on 31 March 2022 at the FIAP in Paris and remotely, to present this European project, the results obtained and the way forward.

Since May 2019, multidisciplinary teams from ten European countries have been working on CCUS Strategy, an ambitious three-year H2020 project (No 837754) funded by the European Union and coordinated by BRGM.

The aim of this project is to explore the development of carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) technologies in 8 regions of Southern and Eastern Europe, as an option for maintaining industrial and energy production while reducing emissions. This project brings together 17 European partners.

The initial results of the CCUS Strategy project have already laid the foundations for a new five-year H2020 project, PilotSTRATEGY. Launched in May 2021, this research project aims to characterise deep saline aquifers in detail to promote the development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies in Europe.

A one-day information and dissemination event on the CCUS Strategy project

On 31 March 2022, from 10.00 to 17.00, the French regional teams working respectively on the Rhone Valley and the Paris Basin regions are hosting a workshop to present CCUS scenarios for 2050.

This event will provide an opportunity for interactive discussions on the development potential, economic and environmental impacts, and societal perception of CCUS in France.

The event can be attended live or remotely depending on preference and the health situation at the time.

Registration closes on 18 March 2022.
