The SFOE research programme CCUS / NET promotes innovation of the entire CO2 value chain, from capture and utilisation in materials or fuels, to transport to storage in the geological subsurface or in long-lived materials. Approaches that lead to negative emissions are of special interest.
As part of the SFOE’s energy research, the CCUS / NET programme primarily focuses on topics that are energy relevant. This includes CCUS and NET topics applied to the energy sector or with a broader relation to energy, i.e. topics that help decarbonise and defossilise the energy and industry sectors (e.g. carbon capture at waste incineration plants, cement plants or in the chemical industry) or reduce the energy and CO2 intensity of specific CCUS technologies or NETs.
A more detailed description of the topics that are supported can be found in the Research Concept CCUS / NET for 2023 – 2028.
