CCUS ALIGNED Equipping industry for low-carbon success

ALIGN-CCUS final dissemination activities

Climate action is an imperative but can we achieve low-carbon success within existing structures of society? Experts from science and industry have worked together on the ALIGN-CCUS project to identify realistic routes to decarbonising industrial nations. By focusing on technical and societal opportunities, we have outlined a holistic approach to the challenges faced by different regions in Europe.

This online knowledge sharing event will feature two half-day morning sessions with scheduled comfort breaks. Day One is aimed at non-technical stakeholders, regional authorities, policymakers, regulators, industry, NGOs, the media and investors. Day Two is suited to but not exclusively for industry, project developers, the research community, policymakers, investors and supply chain businesses.

DAY ONE 10.00-13.00 CET
