On 2 and 3 May, 55 participants from seven Europen countries met to discuss the progress in the ELEGANCY project at Petten in the Netherlands.
ELEGANCY, an ACT (Accelerating CCS Technologies) project, was kicked off in Brussels in October 2017. The main goal is to help fast-tracking the decarbonization of Europe’s energy system by combining two key low-carbon technologies: CCS and hydrogen.
During the first day, discussions were held in and between the different work packages, and a visit was paid to one of the ECN laboratories. There, the visitors could see, among other things, a facility for hydrogen production with CO2 capture using a sorption-enhanced water-gas shift (SEWGS) process. The raw material is blast furnace gases coming from the iron and steel industry.
The second day was dedicated to a plenary session with progress updates from the work packages. Project deliverables are already being published at the project homepage.
