How does CO2 scrubbing work? How can carbon dioxide be turned into a valuable raw material? RWE Power works on answering questions like these at its Innovation Centre at its Niederaussem power plant location. The company has already initiated major research and development projects dealing with the future of the energy supply system.

RWE Power set up the information centre in order to familiarise the public with these topics in an understandable, transparent and entertaining way. It also offers international experts the opportunity to engage in dialogue about world-leading technology.
