ULCOS Florange is a Carbon Capture and Storage project proposed by the European Ultra–Low Carbon dioxide Steelmaking (ULCOS) programme[1] at ArcelorMittal's Florange steel mill.[2]

In June 2010 ArcelorMittal announced that it had filed a request for a permit for the geological storage of CO2 in the in the Lorraine region. The media release also stated that the permit was "filed in partnership with Geogreen, a subsidiary of the French Geological Survey (BRGM), IFP and Géostock. BRGM is also a partner of the project."[1]

The media release stated that the permit was for "portions of the Meuse, Meurthe-et-Moselle and Moselle departments. The goal of this exploration phase, which will take place between 2011 and 2014, is to complement document-based analysis and to acquire geological data on the ground to confirm that the potential considered zones are indeed appropriate for CO2 storage."[1]
