Accelerating CCS Technologies - ACT4 Call
Fördergeber - Sonstige
The goal of ACT is to accelerate and mature CCUS technologies through targeted funding of innovation and research activities.
ACT will address the technological, environmental, social, and economic challenges that will be required to accelerate CCUS. Priority will be given to projects that incorporate or address the European Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan Implementation research priorities (link) and/or focus on the Priority Research Directions (PRDs, link) Identified at the Mission Innovation CCUS Challenge Workshop (Houston 2017).
Successful projects shall facilitate the deployment of CCUS in the energy and industrial sectors. The ACT goal of accelerating the time to market for CCUS technology will require industrial involvement in research and innovation activities. Therefore, applications submitted to the ACT4 call must be industrial oriented.
Projects must include higher Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) of 5 and above, with the goal of advancing the TRL as a result of the project.
Applications within the following subjects are of special interest:
- Carbon capture: production of a pure CO2 stream from combustion and/or processes at the point of emissions.
- CO2 captured from hydrogen production facilities, power stations that use biomass or fossil fuels, hard to decarbonise heavy industry facilities (e.g., cement, iron & steel, chemicals), and natural gas processing plants.
- Examples of carbon capture technologies that could be considered for this Call include without limitation: chemical or physical absorption, cryogenic, membrane separation, chemical or physical adsorption, oxy-fuel combustion, and chemical looping.
- Carbon capture and transportation networks: integrated approaches combining multiple capture points and transportation infrastructure to link multiple specific capture sites to a common network.
- Point-to-point transportation via pipelines, ships, trains, or trucks with a single input CO2 stream.
- Direct carbon conversion: implementation of a process that directly absorbs carbon into a product at the point of emissions such as the creation of CO2-based products (e.g., fuels, chemicals, building materials).
- Permanent Storage: captured CO2 is transported to a geological storage site and then injected deep underground where it is permanently stored.
- Utilization to Storage via Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)/Enhanced Gas Recovery (EGR): the captured CO2 is transported to an oil-field and is used to stimulate more oil production, with the CO2 then being stored in the oil-depleted reservoir.
- Offshore CO2 storage: injection of CO2 into deep geological formations beneath the seabed (e.g., depleted oil and gas reservoirs and saline aquifers) for permanent storage.
- Clean Hydrogen Production: low-carbon hydrogen production from fossil sources combined with CCUS.
- Carbon dioxide removal (CDR):
- Biomass Carbon Removal and Storage (BiCRS)/ Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS): utilisation of biomass as an energy source and the capture and permanent storage of CO2 produced during the conversion of biomass to energy. Example: Power station fuelled with biomass and equipped with CCS
- Direct Air Capture (DAC): production of pure CO2 stream from ambient air.
- In-situ carbon mineralization: CO2 captured, compressed, and stored in reactive geologic formations where CO2 in the fluid form mineralizes to produce water-insoluble calcium or magnesium carbonates, such as in basalts offshore.
The funding agencies involved in the call are:
- Canada, Province of Alberta - Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA)
- Germany - Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH, Projektträger Jülich (FZJ/PtJ)
- India - Department of Science and Technology (DST), Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India
- Norway - The Research Council of Norway (RCN) and Gassnova (GN)
- United States - Department of Energy (DoE).
The total funds made available will be around 14 mill EUR.
