CaLby2030 is organized in 8 Work Packages (WP). WP1-6 cover the technical and scientific tasks related to CFB-CaL technology development, the assessment of environmental impacts, societal readiness and public policy activities. WP7-8 deal with project dissemination, communication, exploitation and management activities.

In order to reach the main outcomes in WP5, progress in WP1-4 and WP6 is needed. The successful retrofit and commissioning of CaL pilots in WP1&3 will be able to generate the first sets of experimental results at TRL6 relevant for cement, iron&steel, Bio-CHP and WtE applications. WP4 will operate initially using existing modelling tools and benchmark studies adapted to the new processes, and will evolve as more information becomes available from piloting experiments to tune models, towards the development of advanced 3D reactor and process models for the different applications. These modelling tools will be the basis for TRL9 demo designs (WP5), using the expertise and know-how from end-users on their plant operations and cluster environments, regarding viable integration possibilities of the plants and viable options for the CO2 management.
