ACT Acorn partners pass first milestone in project to initiate CCS in the UK as work on feasibility study begins.

The Acorn CCS infrastructure project CO2SAPLING has been adopted by the European Union as a Project of Common Interest.

The Acorn project, a full chain small scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in North East Scotland, reached another milestone this week.

Acorn, a ground-breaking carbon capture and storage project, is moving forwards after several funding announcements this year. In May, Acorn was awarded funding from the EU funding round.
