Carbon Cycle Economy Demonstration

Launched in 2021 and scheduled to run until 2025, the C-CED project – a follow-up project at the Underground Sun Conversion site in Pilsbach, Upper Austria – will carry out trials aimed at establishing a sustainable, closed carbon cycle, paving the way for the use of CO2 as a raw material and its storage in the form of methane. 

C-CED combines various CO2 capture and recycling technologies. A pilot facility will extract CO2 from various sources, including the air, flue gases from the steel industry, and biogas, and then convert it into valuable, renewable methane (which is known as geo-methanation), thereby enabling it to be stored.
