The European Green Deal states that "energy storage and carbon capture, storage and utilization” is one of the priority areas to reduce greenhouse gas emissions of 55 % by 2030 and to become carbon neutral by 2050.
The project has received funding from the European Partnership on Metrology, co-financed by European Union Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme and from the Participating States.
The overall aim of the project is to develop new metrology tools in the form of Primary Standards and methods, as well as the relevant best practice/guidance, necessary to support industry in carbon capture utilisation and storage.
Specific objectives are provided from 6 Work Packages (WPs)
WP1 will develop a metrology infrastructure for monitoring CO2 gas-flow as required by CCUS industry and establish Liquid CO2 Flow primary standard requirements
WP2 will provide the metrological support needed to enable the measurement and reporting of emissions to air from different stages of the CCUS process.
WP3 will develop new standards and measurement methods to support European industries with performing the gas composition measurements that are required for carbon dioxide within CCUS.
WP4 will develop new standards and measurement methods to support European industries with performing the gas composition measurements that are required for carbon dioxide within CCUS.
WP5 will create impact for the project to support all relevant stakeholders from industry, manufacturers, standardisation committees, metrology institutes and the scientific community.
WP6 will lead the logistical management of the project, dealing with the organization of meetings, and risk management to ensure the timely and effective achievement of scientific and technical objectives and results.
