Project Greensand backed by €26m award for carbon capture


A carbon capture and storage (CCS) project led by global chemical company INEOS is set to receive funding of DKK 197m (€26m) for carbon dioxide (CO2) storage in the North Sea as part of Project Greensand.

With a storage potential of up to 1m tonnes of CO2 per year from 2025, increasing to 4-8m tonnes by 2030, Greensand is regarded as one of Europe’s leading CO2 storage projects.
