Funded by the European Union H2020 programme, the C4U project spans demonstration of two highly efficient solid based CO2 capture technologies for optimal integration into an iron and steel plant and detailed consideration of the safety, environmental, societal, policy and business aspects for successful incorporation into the North Sea Port CCUS industrial cluster in Belgium and the Netherlands.
Given that the greatest barriers to the development of CCUS in Europe are commercial, rather than technological issues, we develop novel business models to ease deployment (WP6). They aim to establish the long-term business case by considering the concerns of various stakeholders and identifying optimal scenarios to overcome financial risks.
This new paper explores climate-friendly projects that could be part of the COVID-19 recovery while jump-starting the transition of the European basic materials industry, including the steel sector.
Haroun Mahgerefteh and Paul Cobden made a presentation in the weekly Guest Lectures hosted by UKCCSRC, providing an overview of the C4U project and an update on its pilot-scale CO2 capture systems development
