Providing access to cost-efficient, replicable, safe and flexible CCUS ( ACCSESS)
Research Project, 2021 – 2025

New CCUS technology for a climate-neutral Europe.

The EU Green Deal aims at transforming the EU into a resource-efficient economy with no net emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050. In this context, the EU-funded ACCSESS consortium will develop replicable carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technology to pave the way to a climate-neutral Europe. Specifically, it will reduce emissions and contribute to the production of climate-neutral end products.

ACCSESS will provide safe, cost-efficient, flexible and replicable CCUS addressing a range of sectors – from pulp and paper to biorefining. The project will demonstrate cost-efficient CO2 capture and use in industrial facilities. It will provide access routes for CO2 captured from European industries to transport and storage infrastructures under development in the North Sea.
