Launch of EU innovation project on carbon capture and storage

1 May 2020

Cleaner Production Promotion Unit joins with researchers from across Europe to participate in an innovation on low carbon industration production using carbon capture and storage (CCS). 'REALISE: Demonstrating a Refinery-Adapted Cluster-Integrated Strategy to Enable Full-Chain CCUS Implementation' is funded by the European Commission through its Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation.

Within this project, UCC leads a package of work focused on the societal readiness of the technology, and the social acceptability of its potential deployment. The project commenced at the start of May 2020 and will be implemented over a three year period.
