[email protected] project reaches new milestone


A project aiming to reduce the Port of Antwerp’s CO2 emissions has been awarded a €9m Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) grant.

Comprising seven leading chemical and energy companies – Air Liquide, BASF, Borealis, ExxonMobil, INEOS, Fluxys, Port of Antwerp and Total, the [email protected] project is aiming to keep CO2 out of the atmosphere and in doing so, make a significant contribution towards the climate objectives.

The project has the potential to reduce the CO2 emissions within the port (18.65 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions in 2017) by half between now and 2030.

The funding will be used to carry out studies for a liquid CO2 Export Terminal, a CO2 backbone within the Port of Antwerp and a CO2 cross border pipeline to connect to the Netherlands.
