The PRO_CCS is a research project aiming at formulation and elaboration of whole-chain CCS/CCU solutions representing satisfactory economic benefits and appropriate level of social acceptance. The core idea is based on advantageous integration between huge CO2 emission sources and potential CO2 consumers, considering there is both real and potential demand for the CO2 stream which may be utilized for enhanced oil recovery (EOR). PRO_CCS is funded from Norway Grants within the Polish – Norwegian Research Programme operated by the National Centre for Research and Development in Poland. The research has been done by four organizations: Silesian University of Technology (coordinator, www.polsl.pl) and  Czestochowa University of Technology (www.pcz.pl) from Poland, as well as Norwegian Institute for Air Research (www.nilu.no) and Tel-Tek (www.tel-tek.no) from Norway. The project results have been obtained for specific Polish and Norwegian site conditions. Through dedicated sensitivity analyses, more general conclusions on CCU/EOR application from technical, economic, environmental and public acceptance points of view are drawn.
