CCSV perspective and demonstrators funding opportunities in France
In France several research projects on CO2 reuse are conducted and funded by agencies (ANR, ADEME). The Club CO2 has been created in order to gather all French actors (industrial and academic) involved on carbon capture, reuse and storage (32 members including 21 companies).
Reuse of CO2 is a supplementary option to CCS. 12 options of CO2 reuse have been evaluated and a road map on CCUS has been established by ADEME with Club CO2 experts. CCUS is one of the priorities of the program “Investments for the Future” conducted by ADEME and a call for demonstrators projects has been launched in 2010 and end of 2011.
