About the REALISE Project

REALISE CCUS is an ambitious three-year project to support decarbonisation of oil refining through carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS), a critical technology in the net-zero transition. It brings together partners from science and industry in Europe, China and South Korea to demonstrate the full CCUS chain – from CO2 capture, transport and geological storage to CO2 reuse – for industrial clusters centred on refineries.
