Work Packages

WP1 - Mapping of technical aspects and infrastructure needs

  • Regional high-level screening of promising CCUS value chains in the two ZEN regions.
  • Identify technical requirements for CCUS integration and demonstrate how these requirements should be incorporated in the high-level screening of promising CCUS value chains.

WP2 - Mapping of non-technical aspects and stakeholder needs
Lead: Perspectives Climate Research

  • Map non-technical aspects of developing CCUS value chains; identify current and/or potential challenges to CCUS value chains, including social, political, economic, and legal dimensions for both local, regional and cross-border activities; outline opportunities to resolve these challenges.
  • Engage stakeholders to jointly deepen the understanding of non-technical challenges and opportunities.
  • Provide a list of non-technical criteria that serve to inform selection of CCUS value chains based on a synthesis of the above mapping.

WP3 - CCUS value chain scenarios
Lead: Tallinn University of Technology

  • Identify the most promising CCUS value chains for the CCUS ZEN regions based on SWOT analysis.
  • Establish a generic framework for the selection of the most prospective CCUS value chains, based on the high-level screening methodology established in WP1 and integrated with WP2 analyses.
  • Identify potential PCI and determine key stakeholders

WP4 - Development of CCUS value chains and local business models
Lead: Technip Energies

  • Overall objective of WP4 is to consolidate the analyses performed in WPs 1-3 for the most promising CCUS value chain in each of the two CCUS ZEN regions, delivering a documentation set that can be disseminated to potential partners, public authorities, and financers, notably:
  • Business plan, including projections of costs (CAPEX, OPEX), generated revenues and identification of the required funding support
  • Consolidated technical design description for the entire CCUS value chain and details of key metrics (carbon abatement) for the two selected CCUS value chains
  • Early project environmental impact identification based on expert workshop (i.e. no site visit)
  • Project risk assessment

WP5 - Knowledge-sharing, communication and dissemination
Lead: University of Edinburgh

  • Disseminate project results to key stakeholders (public, industries, policy makers) to accelerate and deepen project impact.
  • Facilitate communication and dialogue between project partners, including network partners, and with other relevant EU projects and networks.
  • Plan the exploitation of the project results by facilitating access to project results, encouraging adoption by other industries and countries, making sure best practices are shared, and key economic benefits (job creation/retention) can be easily understood.

WP6 - Project management and administration

  • The main objective is to organise the work in an efficient, flexible and economic way and to monitor that project results are reached according to the work plan. The specific objectives are:
  • Administrative and financial management of the project, including reporting to the EU Commission
  • Day-to-day consortium management
