Norway wants to store all the CO2 in Europe under the North Sea

Norway wants to store all the CO2 in Europe under the North Sea

According to Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store, Norway wants to store all the carbon dioxide produced in Europe. “Without the capture and storage of greenhouse gases for later, it will not be possible to achieve the goals of climate protection,” Store said Monday in Oslo after a meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Schulz. Store added that he knows the concerns in Germany, referring to the rejection of the so-called CCS technology in Germany.

But Norway has a lot of good experience storing CO2 at a depth of 3,000 meters under the North Sea. In the future, storage facilities can store all the greenhouse gases produced in Europe. “We have the experience and we know it stays there. It’s a safe place to store it.” Norway later wants to use carbon dioxide as a raw material again.

Scholz also supports the project. Germany receives gas from Norway, but wants to return carbon dioxide in the future. The chancellor sidestepped the question of whether CCS could also be used in Germany. “There have been significant and impressive technological advances in recent years,” Schulz said. Talk about great technology. Another alternative is that the carbon dioxide produced during industrial production does not escape in the first place, but can be used at the production site.
