Accelerated deployment of integrated CCUS chains based on solvent capture technology

Welcome to the AURORA project’s website

AURORA (Accelerated deployment of integrated CCUS chains based on solvent capture technology) is a three-and-a-half-year project funded by the European Union’s HORIZON EUROPE research and innovation programme and kicked off in January 2023. AURORA aims to optimise and qualify the open and non-proprietary CESAR1 solvent carbon capture technology for commercial deployment, thereby accelerating the decarbonisation of the industry.
