The ConsenCUS project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programma under grant agreement No 101022484. 

The project presents technological innovations in the 3 main components of CCUS: (1) carbon capture based on alkali absorption, coupled to a novel electrodialysis cell, (2) conversion of CO2 to formate for the current market, as well as emerging markets and (3) safe cyclic loading of CO2 ino salt formations and aquifers for storage. The capture and conversion routes are unique in taking only electricity and water as consumables. Life-cycle analysis and techno-economic evaluations will address how the innovations can be exploited, optimizing environmental benefits while providing sound business cases for the three sectors participating and beyond.
