An exciting week in Norway for the PYROCO2 consortium!

The partners gathered in Porsgrunn for the Project Launch Event and 12 months project meeting.

The project has been officially presented on September 21st, 2022, through the public event “Sustainable value creation from industrial CO2 – Technological, industrial, and societal perspectives on the Green Deal implementation” – organized by SINTEF, the coordinator of the project – which brought together representatives from industry, funding agencies, research organizations, policymakers and other societal stakeholders to discuss key aspects of the objectives set by the EU Green Deal to achieve a sustainable, climate-neutral Europe by 2050.

On the same week, the PYROCO2 consortium gathered at Herøya Industrial Park, Porsgrunn, Norway, on September 22 and 23, 2022, for the annual project meeting and to discuss results and progress thus far related to the project. After one year of online meetings, representatives from each partner enjoyed two days together to brainstorm, share knowledge, and discuss results, progress, and challenges in each Work Package and the project as a whole.

The gathering was enriched by the presence of the members of the PYROCO2 Advisory Board, who shared with the consortium best practices and useful own experience that will be instrumental to achieve the goals of this ambitious EU funded project.
