Liquefied Carbon Dioxide Ready to Sail
GOTHENBURG, Sweden, June 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Gothenburg and Sweden could be the first in the world to create a joint infrastructure for the transport of liquefied carbon dioxide extracted using CCS technology. The project -CinfraCap - is a unique collaborative venture between Preem, Göteborg Energi, Nordion Energi, St1, Renova, and Gothenburg Port Authority.
"We must speed up the process if we are to achieve our climate goals and collaboration is the best way forward. We expect to be able to transport two million tonnes of captured carbon dioxide per year from our quayside facility and to do so we must have an efficient infrastructure," said Elvir Dzanic, Gothenburg Port Authority chief executive and one of the parties involved in the joint CinfraCap infrastructure project.
CCS is widely regarded as a key component in the transition of the global energy system, and several research and development projects are already under way. Within the CinfraCapproject the various parties are looking to join forces to identify the most effective way of approaching the industry-scale logistics system required to support CCS. The idea is to present concrete proposals for an optimised infrastructure, and link into other CCS projects. Once the infrastructure is in place, the aim is for it to be an open access system, expanding its potential user base.
