BEIS launched a call for CCUS Innovation in July 2018 to offer grant funding for world-leading research and innovation projects that offer:

  • a significant reduction in the cost of capturing and sequestering carbon dioxide; and / or
  • a quicker, more widespread deployment of CCUS in the UK and internationally

Up to £24 million of grant funding was made available under this programme to support:

  • feasibility studies
  • industrial research
  • experimental development projects
  • infrastructure projects

The project funding period is up to 24 months, with projects finishing by 31 March 2021.

The call closed to applications in November 2018.

The list of successful projects awarded grant funding is available on this page.
