Funding

The ALIGN-CCUS project has been co-funded by the European Union’s ERA-NET Accelerating CCS Technologies (ACT) initiative, which supports the delivery of safe and cost-effective carbon capture and storage (CCS). The governments of each participating country have also provided funding through the ACT initiative. One third of the project’s participants are private companies, with around 35% of the project budget committed through in-kind financing provided by industrial participants.
