ALIGN-CCUS Webinar 7 - Preparing for large-scale capture demonstration

The seventh webinar from the ALIGN-CCUS project described outputs from Work Package 1, which has focused on the market readiness of carbon capture technology for both power and industrial applications. Work to date has involved testing campaigns at cutting-edge research facilities in order to improve the environmental and economic performance of CO2 capture technology.

Our speakers provided an overview of guidelines developed specifically for CCS operators and other stakeholders. They covered topics such as guidelines cover emissions control, solvent management and derisking process dynamics and control. Download speaker biographies.
