On 8 March Europe took a giant step towards climate protection: as part of the Greensand project, partners of the ENERGY HUB Port of Wilhelmshaven (INEOS and Wintershall Dea) demonstrated the feasibility of storing CO2 along the entire value chain for the first time.

Carbon dioxide delivered from Belgium is stored in a former oilfield by the North Sea in Denmark, 200 kilometres from the west coast.

According to various scientific studies, including one conducted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Europe can only meet its climate targets with the aid of this CCS technology (Carbon Capture and Storage).

On Wednesday, the first carbon storage was completed in the presence of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark – we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the entire project team and gladly accepted the invitation.

The ENERGY HUB will contribute significantly to the further development of the project via Wilhelmshaven – something we are very much looking forward to.
