Future CO2 reception facility in Aalborg is part of a project that has just been designated as a Project of Common Interest by the European Union.
Monday at the annual EU conference, CCUS Forum, in Aalborg, it was disclosed that the European Union has designated Fidelis New Energy’s onshore Norne Carbon Storage Hub as a Project of Common Interest to promote the safe and efficient storage of European CO2 emissions in Denmark.
The first large-scale reception facility will be located at the port of Aalborg.
– Although Norne is based in Denmark, our vision has always been to create a project of true European common interest, a pan-European solution to help decarbonize Denmark as well as our neighbors. Our receiving facilities and future pipelines will allow us to accept CO2 from our existing Danish industry as well as our neighbors helping the EU achieve its climate goals. With our advantaged location and geology, Denmark will become a global leader in the carbon management industry and allow for continued investment and industrial growth in Northern Europe, says Ulrik Dan Weuder, Managing Director of Fidelis New Energy Europe.
