OCTAVIUS is the successor of the 2 previous European
and CESAR on CO2
capture in postcombustion.
European Commission is also supporting several other R&D
projects on the development of CCS technology.
projects are linked below.
Development of pre combustion capture technologies and novel capture
technologies. The aim is to achieve a CO2 capture cost of 15
euro/tonne CO2. The project also includes plans for pilot
Aim: Development of concepts for electricity and hydrogen production with
CCS. The establishing a basis for a demonstration plant – called the
Hypogen plant – is part of the project.
to develop and validate a number of pre combustion CO2 capture
technologies that can result in a CO2 capture cost <20
euro per tonne CO2 at a CO2 capture rate of 90%
Assessing the European capacity of CO2 storage
Physical injection of CCS in a storage site to investigate CO2
behaviour after injection.
Research on monitoring and verification techniques for deep subsurface
preparing for a CCS demonstration plant in China.
accelerating the development of CO2 Capture and Storage
(CCS) which is one of the main strategies to combat global warming.
tackles the problems of rolling out a shared
transportation infrastructure capable of connecting geological storage
with various medium size CO2-emitting industrial facilities
within a close geographical proximity.
