Abstract

This is the final report of the CASTOR project, which aimed to develop and validate, in public / private partnerships, a substantial part innovative technologies needed to capture CO2 at the post-combustion stage and to store CO2. The CASTOR R&D target was to enable the capture and geological storage of 10 % of the CO2 emissions of Europe, which corresponds to about 30 % of CO2 emitted by European power and industrial plants.

The report begins with an introduction to the project's objectives and targets, summarising the general idea and directions for research. It describes the work done for different budget scenarios and finally, concludes with the major advances and dissemination actions.
