Project: Enabling a Low-Carbon Economy via Hydrogen and CCS

The project addresses fast-track of the decarbonization of Europe's energy system by exploiting the synergies between two key low-carbon technologies: CCS and H2. ELEGANCY will demonstrate effective CCS technologies with high industrial relevance and identify and promote business opportunities for industrial CCS enabled by H2 as a key energy carrier by performing national case studies.
