The first part of the Danish government’s CCS strategy is ready
In June, the Danish government announced the first part of a new CCS strategy (in Danish) dealing with the transport and storage of CO2. The government wants to store CO2 on the Danish continental shelf.
First part of CCS strategy: Transport and storage
The strategy facilitates both the export of Danish CO2 to other countries and the possibility of a business importing foreign CO2 to be stored on the Danish continental shelf. In June, the Danish Energy Agency also announced (link in Danish) a tendering competition for approximately DKK 200 million for the development and demonstration of technologies that would allow for CO2 storage in the North Sea.
Second part of CCS strategy: CO2 capture
The second part of the CCS strategy will deal with where the CO2 will be captured from and will be announced later this year.
