On March 10 and 11, the EERA Joint Programme on Advanced Materials and Processes for Energy Applications (JP AMPEA) organised its first workshop on Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS). The event gathered 80 registered participants from JP AMPEA as well as other EERA Joint Programmes and researchers from international communities (Brazil, Canada, Turkey, etc.).
Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage is considered as one of the key technology areas for putting global energy systems on a sustainable trajectory towards Europe net-zero 2050 goal. Indeed, CCUS is the only group of technologies that addresses not only the reduction of CO2 emissions in key industrial sectors, but also the removal of emitted CO2 where it cannot be avoided and the conversion into useful energy sources.
The workshop provided attendees with a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art of CCUS technologies, with a strong focus on the materials science research. From nanomembranes and microorganisms to novel catalysts, materials are at the core of every CCUS process.
To learn more about the latest trends in CCUS and how innovative materials can contribute to tackling the socio-economic issues surrounding the technology, access all workshop's presentations here.
