About the project

STRATEGY CCUS is an ambitious three-year project funded by the European Union to support the development of low-carbon energy and industry in Southern and Eastern Europe. We are focusing on eight regions considered promising for carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS). We aim to encourage and support initiatives within each region by producing local development plans and business models tailored to industry’s needs.
