The TRIPLE-A project encourages homeowners in single-family housing to use low-carbon technologies. Within the partnership, seven local authorities have identified and instigated new ways of supporting homeowners in local areas through web portals, pop-up centres and demos.
The project has facilitated the installation of 1,640 demo homes, which in turn achieved a CO2 saving of 3,383 tonnes every year. They have also completed 1599 thermographic surveys, 199 feedback surveys, and had over 7,500 visitors to the pop-up centres.
The Carbon2Value project will demonstrate how the steel sector can achieve a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by up to 45%. They will implement a breakthrough solution for the separation of CO2 and CO from gases produced during the steelmaking process in order to capture and convert the CO2 into valuable chemical products.
The engineering for this solution has been finalised and the procurement of the installation launched. The experimental phase of the pilot plant in Flanders has already begun, with further trials planned with downstream units run by partners in the international consortium.
