While several framework conditions need to be adjusted to make the consortium’s plan economically and technically feasible, it is estimated that if the project is realised, 3 million tonnes of CO2 could be captured annually. Managing to achieve this feat and then converting it to green fuels would mean that the consortium would contribute 15 per cent of the reductions needed to fulfil the Danish government’s 70 per cent by 2030 goal.
Through its efforts, the consortium also hopes to make it significantly cheaper for utilities to channel the carbon further after having captured and stored it temporarily. With this initiative, it is the hope to inspire more similar projects in other countries, so we achieve the reduction targets globally as well as nationally.
