Energy Transition and Environment

The world faces major threats due to unsustainable consumption of fossil resources and raw materials, and unsustainable land use. The whole society and all sectors need to make a U-turn in order to preserve our planet for future generations.

Uniresearch consultants have profound knowledge of the opportunities and challenges in the Energy Transition and are keen to support you to acquire funding for research and innovation in e.g. the following EU programs: Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy, Blue Growth, Biobased Industries, Mobility for Growth, Fuel Cells and Hydrogen and Climate action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials. Our services in project set-up and – management cover each development stage; from early stage research projects to demonstration projects.

CESAR CO2 Enhanced Separation & Recovery

As a direct results from the CESAR project a number of industrial parties have decided to initiate a long term test campaign. A number of projects have be initiated as a direct result and follow up of the CESAR project.
Uniresearch Role

Uniresearch was hired by the coordinator to write and compile the grant application. After approval of the project, Uniresearch has become responsible for the project coordination, management and the dissemination/exploitation activities.

CESAR aims for a breakthrough in the development of low-cost Post-Combustion CO2 capture technology in order to provide an economically feasible solution for both new large scale power plants and the retrofit of existing power plants which are responsible for the majority of all anthropogenic CO2 emissions (worldwide, approx. 5,000 power plants emit around 11 GtCO2/year).

With CESAR we focus on post-combustion capture as this is generally accepted to be the only option for the current technology and for retrofit in existing power plants. Moreover, analysis of the current R&D projects in Europe shows that there is yet no follow-up to the successful post-combustion work in the CASTOR project that will end in February 2008, while R&D aimed at other types of carbon capture technologies have already been accommodated for.
