Project Overview
DECARBit responds to the urgent need for further research and development in advanced pre-combustion capture techniques to substantially reduce emissions of greenhouse gases from fossil fuel power plants. The project will accelerate the technology development and contribute to the deployment of large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) plants, in line with the adopted European policies for emission reductions.

The project focus is to pursue the search for improved and new pre-combustion technologies that can meet the cost target of 15€/ton CO2 captured as stated in the Work Programme.

DECARBit is designed as a Collaborative Large-scale Integrating Project. The RTD activities are structured in 5 sub-projects directly responding to the objectives of the Work Programme:
