The purpose of CCS
The carbon caption and storage solution is intended for industries that are unable to go carbon-free in the short term, partly because the required solutions will not be ready in time. This concerns mainly energy-intensive companies such as steel mills, chemical companies, fertiliser makers and oil refineries.
CCS allows these companies to achieve the required carbon reduction and enables them to green their operations in a future-proof way. Additionally, the technology developed for carbon capture and storage can also be used to facilitate the hydrogen economy, as a stepping stone to carbon capture and utilisation, and perhaps even to extract CO2 directly from the atmosphere (direct air capture).
Public partner in CCS projects
EBN is actively involved in the development of carbon storage facilities below the sea bed of the Dutch part of the North Sea. Our role extends to advising the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy and implementing the climate and energy policy. We work closely together with private-sector and public-sector parties involved in CCS implementation in the Netherlands. EBN is also a partner on the Porthos and Aramis carbon transport and storage projects, as well as on other projects that are enabling carbon storage under the North Sea bed. On top of all that, EBN develops and shares knowledge in the area of carbon storage.
If you have any questions about EBN’s carbon transport and storage activities, please feel free to get in touch with one of our experts.
