ALIGN-CCUS project partners at RWE have produced synthetic fuel using carbon dioxide (CO2) captured from the flue gas of a coal-fired power station.

The breakthrough has been made at RWE’s Niederaussem Power Station in North Rhine-Westphalia using a demonstration synthesis unit, which powered up last November.

The ALIGNwiki, launched today, is a web-based knowledge platform that has been developed collaboratively by key experts active in the project. Integrated into the ALIGN-CCUS project website, the Wiki provides user-friendly access to the objectives and outputs of the project.     

We are in uncharted waters as governments worldwide seek to contain the coronavirus outbreak. Our work on climate action remains as important as ever and our research teams will continue to work as best they can under these challenging circumstances.
