Clean Energy Ministerial CCUS Initiative is holding a webinar on 7 December 2020 at 14:00 CET/ 13:00 GMT on ‘Carbon capture, utilisation and storage in the Netherlands’.
The Netherlands is moving ahead with carbon capture, leading the way in continental Europe. The Rotterdam Port area Porthos project is the best known large-scale project in the country, however other projects are also being planned, such as Athos in Amsterdam and the Carbon Connect Delta project. Clusters with large CO2 point sources coupled with suitable storage capacities in the North Sea provide a promising ground for several CCUS projects in the country. There are also industrial clusters further from the coast, whereby innovative transport solutions, particularly through the use of shipping, are being considered.
To help industry advance their projects, the Dutch government is putting in place a specific financial incentive mechanism via the clean energy support system known as “SDE++”, providing economic incentives for CO2 capture from various installations. In this webinar, attendees will hear from experts from both government and industry on the direction the Netherlands is taking in carbon capture.
