The CCU/S White Paper, prepared in the frames of the National Laboratory for Renewable Energy and reviewed by professional actors, is now available!
The White Paper entitled "Carbon dioxide storage and utilization (CCS/CCU) opportunities in Hungary" was prepared in the project of the National Laboratory for Renewable Energy (Megújuló Energiák Nemzeti Laboratórium, MENL), in cooperation with the SZTE Greennovation Center and IFUA Horváth & Partners Kft.

The White Paper, as a foundational document often used in the law and strategy-making processes in the European Union, usually reflects on global problems, the management of which requires a unified and coordinated (often international) action plan. This White Paper covers the topic of Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCU/S) technologies, and its primary goal is to establish the professional foundation of the domestic CCU/S industry. Moreover, the document can serve as a starting point for the more effective integration of CCU/S technologies into the national energy and climate strategies, and it can also help economic actors to develop the most suitable decarbonization strategy for them. Since CCU/S technologies are included in the decarbonization options alongside other solutions of different types, maturity levels and deployment levels, their application takes place in a rather complex environment from technological, economic and legal points of view.
