We are pleased to present you the first newsletter of the CAPTUS project. From now on we will keep you updated every 6 months about the main advances of the project, partners’ activities, findings, etc.

During the next four years, the EU-funded project CAPTUS will investigate carbon capture technologies and strategies to help energy intensive industries (EIIs) to offset energy costs and increase their overall sustainability. The key approach of the project is to leverage peaks in the renewable energy (RE) supply for carbon capture and to use that captured carbon to make different liquid energy carriers, which are feedstocks for renewable fuels and chemicals. CAPTUS will build and test pilot installations at three different plants – a steel, chemical and cement plant – serving as representatives for typical EIIs. 

The CAPTUS consortium, coordinated by Centro de Investigación de Recursos y Consumos Energéticos (CIRCE, Spain), includes 18 partners from 8 countries (Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal and Spain) combining academia, research, engineering, industries and universities.
