Antwerp moves ahead on carbon capture

A consortium at the port of Antwerp is to carry out a feasibility study into the development of carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) infrastructure as the port works toward reducing its environmental footprint.

Air Liquide, BASF, Borealis, Ineos, ExxonMobil, Fluxys, the port of Antwerp and Total will examine the economic and technical feasibility of CCUS facilities that would be accessible to the whole port community.

Port of Antwerp ceo Jacques Vandermeiren declared: “In addition to making use of sustainable energy sources and raising the energy efficiency of production companies, CCUS can make an important contribution in the transition to a sustainable, lower emissions, circular economy in the port.

“If such joint infrastructure can be realised then it will benefit the entire industrial community in the port,” he said.

The port also wants to investigate international collaboration for cross-border CO2 transport and storage, as Belgium’s geology is not suitable for storing CO2 underground.
