The EU on June 3, 2010, launched the first-ever European industrial Initiatives (EII), including the Carbon Dioxide Capture & Storage (CCS) EII. As an innovative model for collaboration between industry, EU Member States, the European Commission, the European Energy Research Alliance and other research institutes and NGOs, the CCS EII has two key objectives: ensure the cost competitive deployment of CCS after 2020 and its further development to allow its application to all carbon intensive industrial sectors.
