The overall objective of DECARBit is to enable zero-emission pre-combustion power plants by 2020 with a capture cost of less than 15€/ton with the highest feasible capture rate. ChallengesToday the energy supply and use in Europe is heavily based on fossil fuels and imports and to comply with the aspiring policies adopted for Green House Gases (GHG) cuts, progressive R&DD1 action is needed within CCS. DECARBit aims at performing research, development and piloting of advanced pre-combustion CO2 capture technologies which will substantially reduce emissions of greenhouse gases from fossil fuel power plants.
