Network joins Dutch focus on North Sea CCUS

The CCUS Projects Network joined a strategic gathering of industry and research last month, which highlighted the role of North Sea carbon capture and storage (CCS) as part of Europe’s climate action.

The conference, held in the Netherlands, brought together key proponents of carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technologies, including the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, the UK CCS Research Centre, TNO, Bellona and Equinor.

The event, CCUS developments in the North Sea region, was hosted by the Port of Rotterdam Authority and TKI Nieuw Gas, and developed by CATO – the Dutch research and development programme for CCS – as part of its knowledge sharing activities.

Members of the Network’s secretariat had the opportunity, at a dedicated CCUS Projects Network stand, to engage with participants and provide information about its aims and activities.

The CCUS Projects Network is funded by the European Commission as part of its support for CCUS through a range of policy initiatives, which includes the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan.

More details about the event can be found on the CATO website.
