Dear Members and Followers,
We are happy to come to you with the last newsletter for this very rich and eventful year.
You surely have observed an increasing number of announcements on industrial collaborations and financing decisions for CCU technologies throughout the year, highlighting the readiness to scale up and deploy CCU at industrially relevant levels.
Last month the CCUS Forum introduced the Aalborg declaration, one of the first initiatives among EU countries clearly highlighting the importance of CCU and CCS at the highest political level (and yes, finally, the term CCUS has been separated in two). Policy efforts in further files like the Industrial Carbon Management Strategy and the Net Zero Industry Act will be continuing in the first quarter of 2024.
The Innovation Fund has also opened the next round calls, a pilot auction for renewable hydrogen with a budget of €800 million and the ordinary call for projects with a budget of €4 billion. Also don’t forget to check the upcoming events where CO2 Value Europe is invited to contribute and where members can profit from discounts.
Lastly, a warm welcome to our four new members IMEC, Paebbl, Again and Neustark for joining us and strengthening our membership base.
Enjoy the reading and stay in touch.
The CO2 Value Europe team wishes you a wonderful Christmas period and a healthy and happy 2024!
