Within the time frame and the monetary constraints of this project, SINTEF will execute the techno-strategic leadership of the EERA CCS Joint Programme in a capable manner. Emphasis will be placed on CCS technology, especially techniques and innovation ai med to improve the overall efficacy and levelised costs (and investments) and to improve critical components of the CCS chain. Technically, this will include the de-risking of CCS as a climate mitigation option and the strengthening of the competitive edg e of European stakeholders. The intention is to create an environment aimed at releasing techno-commercial opportunities. This will include efforts striving at harmonising industrial norms, codes and regulations, providing factual information for public a wareness, and last - but not least - facilitating international collaboration on technology demonstration, valorisation, and verification of CCS in part or as a whole.
Due to the need for re-accelerating CCS in Europe, and for reducing the expanding capac ity needs within the European Commission, it is expected - as already indicated by EU officials - that the EERA CCS Joint Programme may gradually take on an advisory function vis-à-vis the European Commission pertaining to issues and topics relating to CC S research and technology development.
