Conference: Accelerating the green transition through the MissionGreenFuels and INNO-CCUS partnerships
On January 17th, INNO-CCUS held a conference together with MissionGreenFuels for 200 people at the Technical University of Denmark. The conference focused on the realization of Pool 2 for INNO-CCUS and MissionGreenFuels, which allocates over 160 million Danish kroner for research and innovation projects in the areas of CO2 capture and storage or utilization as well as green fuels for transport and industry.
At the conference, the chairmanship of each partnership had the opportunity to present the mission-driven approach, we are using to solve the climate challenges we are facing. One of our focus areas is to create a connection between the different innovative green initiatives within CO2 capture, storage and utilization, and green fuels for transport and industry. Therefore, we invited representatives from the Business Lighthouse projects in Denmark to share their input on how to accelerate the green transition.
Moreover, a panel debate was held among Anne Højer Simonsen (DI - Dansk Industri), Kristian Jensen (Green Power Denmark), Anne Grethe Holmsgaard (EUDP - Det Energiteknologiske Udviklings- og Demonstrationsprogram) and Annemarie Munk Riis (Innovationsfonden), where academic, industrial and political responsibility and contributions to the green transition were debated.
The goal of the conference was to ensure the cumulative and continuous building of knowledge in relation to the development of the technological areas in MissionGreenFuels and INNO-CCUS. The conference provided an opportunity to present ongoing projects and discuss problem-solving across disciplines and the two mission areas. This culminated in 2 workshops, a facilitated process that helped participants to meet new partners and develop concrete project ideas for the Pool 2 application.
We hope to see many strong applications for pool 2. INNO-CCUS is hosting a Q&A webinar on February 7 2023, where you can ask any questions, you may have regarding the application process. Sign up for the Q&A here
The INNO-CCUS pool 2 is now open! We support projects with 3-10 million DKK, and the deadline for application is March 21st 2023.
The INNO-CCUS partnership invests in ambitious, cross-industrial research and innovation projects that can create new, concrete solutions to issues and challenges towards 2030 and 2050 outlined in the INNO-CCUS partnership goals.
The projects should focus on ambitious results with high-value impact, whether in the form of new knowledge, improved and new processes, systems, products or solutions. The projects must create societal or economic value to enable sustainable transformation related to CCUS within Danish public and private companies and with customers in society, e.g., among citizens, states, regions, and municipalities.
You can find all you need to know about application formalities and deadlines here: https://inno-ccus.dk/apply. In February, we are hosting a Q&A webinar - the date will be announced on LinkedIn and here on our website.
Our second pool of funding opens in a few weeks and all projects within CCUS research and innovation, from TRL 3-7, are encouraged to apply.
Pool 2 contains up to 80 million DKK in funding and projects can apply for 3 million DKK - 10 million DKK. Project participants must be, or become partners in the INNO-CCUS partnership, which consists of 57 partners in the public/private CCUS space.
The application deadline will be late March 2022. All information will be available here on the website at the beginning of January. To gear up for the launch on pool 2, we’re hosting a conference on January 17th for prospective partners and innovators in the CCUS-space.

CO2 must be a resource instead of a problem.
With the partnership INNO-CCUS, Denmark must be equipped to achieve the ambitious goals of a 70 percent reduction in CO2 in 2030 and complete climate neutrality in 2050. The new major research effort must ensure effective capture and storage of CO2, and lastly the development of methods to recycle CO2 as a building block for new materials.
