ALIGN-CCUS (Accelerating Low CarboN Industrial Growth through Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage) is a project supported by the ERA-NET Co-fund ACT program. In the first call of this program nine European countries, together with the European Horizon 2020 program have joined forces by making funds available for research and innovation actions related to carbon dioxide (CO2) Capture,Storage and Utilisation (CCUS). The participants of ALIGN-CCUS project represented the ERA-NET ACT countries of The Netherlands, Germany, Norway, Romania and the United Kingdom. The ALIGN-CCUS consortium involved 30 partners from industry, research and academia and has considerable involvement of industrial companies and enterprise organizations. The industrial partners not only supported the research but also committed to directly invest and participate in the R&D and demonstration activities in the project, boosting the credibility of the project’s potential for accelerating and maturing CCUS technologies. The project has ended in November 2020 and its results are already being used in various CCUS projects around the globe. More than 100 reports have been produced, of which 57 are public and available from our website www.alignccus.eu. Many detailed results will be presented at conferences and in other papers. In this paper a high-level overview is given of the research performed in ALIGN-CCUS and its immediate impact in the CCUS community.
