OpenGoSim (OGS) is pleased to announce the award of a £0.5M grant within the COREu project, a new R&D initiative in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) funded by the European Horizon program. The project will use the OGS simulation software technology to support new CCS sites in Europe, while sponsoring new development to improve injectivity prediction and uncertainty assessment.

COREu aims to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future by demonstrating key technologies along the entire CCS value chain in Southern Europe, and by supporting the development of CCS routes linking emitters with storage sites in Central Eastern Europe.

To achieve its goals, COREu brings together four potential routes and the relevant stakeholders under the same project: Prinos/Kavala in Greece, South Moravia in the Czech Republic, Baltic/Gdansk in Poland and Western Ukraine. Through these routes, COREu will initiate the development of an open-access, transnational network to connect emitters with storage sites across Europe. The project will focus on multimodal transportation and the creation of emitter clusters to fuel the necessary demand and investment rationale for the adoption of CCS.

OGS will work with a large consortium of more than 40 partners–including research institutes, universities and industry players–to speed up the adoption of CCS in Europe.
