Dear members and followers,
We are happy to come to you with the October edition of our Newsletter.
We had the pleasure of organising our annual event, the CO2 Value Days, earlier this month in Barcelona, hosted by our member LEITAT, where more than 100 CCU experts gathered together to follow the developments and connect with each other. It was a fruitful event with very interesting discussions and exchanges; a big thank you to our members for their continuous commitment to helping our Association grow.
In this edition, you will be able to have a closer look at the progress and news of the EU-funded projects we are participating in. On the policy front, we are approaching the end line of a very dense legislative period with the Fit-for-55 package and we are transitioning to the implementation phase. Still, important instruments like the Net Zero Industry Act, the 2040 Climate targets and the Industrial Carbon Management Strategy are pending, making early 2024 a crucial period for the recognition of CCU in policy.
On the funding front, we were excited to see many projects with CCU elements being selected for funding by the Innovation Fund under its 3rd large-scale call and we also witnessed the evolution of the Innovation Fund to accommodate further sectors (e.g. maritime) and further support instruments (e.g. hydrogen auction).
Also, please remember to scroll through the interesting events that are taking place in the coming months and for which we have secured advantageous discount rates for our members.
Enjoy the reading and don’t hesitate to get in touch.
