The ConsenCUS project inaugurated its innovative electrochemical CO2 capture and conversion demonstration plant in Aalborg, Denmark, during the 3rd international CCUS Forum held from 27-28 November 2023. This milestone emphasises the continued importance of Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) development in achieving our climate goals.
The project aims to demonstrate a new technique using renewable electricity to capture carbon emissions from hard-to-abate sectors. With this, ConsenCUS strives to contribute to the climate goals set by the European Union to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
ConsenCUS, which commenced in 2021, is a 4-year innovation and demonstration project, funded by the European Commission through the Horizon Europe programme. It investigates how electrochemically driven carbon capture and conversion innovations can be combined with safe transport through economically viable networks and clusters, with specific attention to the interaction of local communities with technological developments. ConsenCUS aims to provide an industrial roadmap to a net-zero carbon future through “Carbon neutral clusters by electricity-based innovations in Capture, Utilisation and Storage”.
