ALIGN-CCUS: Accelerating low-carbon industrial growth through CCUS


Date: Thursday 30 November

Time: 15.00 – 16.30 (Central European Time)

The international ALIGN-CCUS project, funded by the EU’s Accelerating CCS Technologies fund, unites science and industry in the shared goal of transforming Europe’s industrial regions into economically robust, low-carbon centres by 2025.

Our 31 partners are working on six key areas of research to support the quick and cost-effective deployment of carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) and provide blueprints for its delivery in six European clusters of industrial activity.

You are invited to join the first in our series of webinars, which will describe and discuss the research being undertaken during the three-year project. We’ll begin with an overview of each work package, presented by the work package leaders, followed by an interactive Q&A session. We look forward to your participation.



15.00 Welcome and project overview – Peter van Os, Project Co-ordinator, TNO

15.15 Preparing for large-scale capture demonstration (work package 1) – Hanne Kvamsdal, SINTEF

15.25 Preparing for large-scale transport networks for offshore storage of CO2 (WP2) – Hans Aksel Haugen, Tel-Tek

15.35 Strategic storage for ALIGN-CCUS European industrial clusters (WP3) – Maxine Akhurst, British Geological Survey

15.45 Large-scale energy storage and conversion (WP4) – Peter Moser, RWE

15.55 Blueprints for low carbon industrial clusters through CCUS (WP5) – Tom Mikunda, TNO

16.05 Implementing CCUS in society (WP6) – Emma ter Mors, Leiden University

16.15 Question & Answer session

16.30 Close

We hope you are able to join us but, if not, the webinar recording will be made available here in due course.

The ALIGN-CCUS project is an international partnership of 31 science and industry partners aimed at helping transform six European industrial regions into economically robust, low-carbon centres by 2025. The project has been co-funded by the European Union’s ERA-NET Accelerating CCS Technologies (ACT) initiative, which supports the delivery of safe and cost-effective carbon capture and storage (CCS). The governments of each participating country have also provided funding through the ACT initiative.
