Port of Stockholm studies CCS node feasibility

The Swedish Port Authority will conduct a feasibility study to establish a node for captured carbon dioxide at Stockholm Norvik Port using funding from the country’s Energy Agency awards.

The NICE project (Norvik Infrastructure CCS East Sweden) will follow an initial general proof of concept study designed with participating stakeholders to clarify the prerequisites and conditions for establishing an interim storage facility at the Ports of Stockholm’s harbour in Norvik.

The goal is to increase the possibilities for emission reduction and negative emissions by establishing a regional, sustainable, and cost-efficient carbon dioxide infrastructure in eastern Sweden.

A solution for transport and handling between facilities that are source of the emissions to the end capture site would be a major contribution to Sweden achieving its environmental goals.

The feasibility study aims to develop a proposal for a systemic approach to carbon capture & storage (CCS), including a solution for transport and handling between source emission facilities and the end capture site, risk analyses, business models, and permit issues.

Once established, the system would provide third-party access.

Clara Lindblom, Chair of the Board at the Ports of Stockholm, stated, “Stockholm Norvik Port has large potential to become a carbon dioxide hub. The proposed transport solution would be able to handle a significant proportion of the carbon dioxide transport from Sweden, potentially around 9 million tonnes per year, with a potential to become the largest of all similar projects in Sweden.”

The feasibility study will be carried out in collaboration with Stockholm Exergi, Mälarenergi, Söderenergi, Vattenfall, Heidelberg Materials, Nordkalk, and Plagazi.
