Providing access to cost-efficient, replicable, safe and flexible CCUS
CCUS across industrial sectors
ACCSESS takes a cross-sectorial approach to CO2 Capture, Transportation, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS), working with Pulp and Paper, Cement, Waste to Energy, and Biorefining, all industries with big potential for carbon dioxide removal.
Demonstrate and integrate cost-efficient CO2 capture and use in industrial installations to enable permanent CDR.
Provide access routes for CO2 captured from European industries to flexible transport and storage infrastructures in the North Sea.
Leverage CDR to drive societal integration of CCUS towards improved urban and European sustainability.
ACCSESS participated in a panel discussion about negative emissions at Arendalsuka this year.
ACCSESS has been included in an EU document mapping innovative demonstration projects for climate neutrality.
On Friday 23 June, representatives from Heidelberg Materials visited TCM together with the ACCSESS project management from SINTEF.
The path to a Climate Neutral Europe
The ACCSESS project’s vision is to develop replicable CCUS pathways towards a Climate Neutral Europe in 2050.
ACCSESS will improve CO2 capture integration in industrial installations (20-30% cost cuts) as a key element to accelerate CCUS implementation, address the full CCUS chain and the societal integration of CCUS.
What is CCS?
ACCSESS aims to increase the societal understanding of CCS technologies, and how they can contribute to the development of a low-carbon society.
As such, the project has created a series of videos explaining core CCS concepts in relation to the four industrial sectors being examined in ACCSESS: pulp and paper, cement, waste-to-energy, and biorefineries.
ACCSESS brings together 18 partners dedicated to realising innovations for CDR in a CCUS context.
Moving CCUS in the right direction
To maximize the impact of the Centres main objectives and accelerate the necessary uptake and deployment of CCUS, ACCSESS takes a cross-sectorial approach. Throughout the project, five key items will be tracked for project coherence and efficient internal and external communication and dissemination.
