CO2 Pipeline System to Decarbonize Industry Pollution in Germany
Wintershall Dea and Fluxys collaborate on a potential plan for the development of a CO2 pipeline network that transports industrial emissions from industrial clusters in South Germany to offshore CCS storage locations in the North Sea. Both companies are in the process of independently developing and constructing CO2 hubs that will act as collection points in the transport network. Wintershall Dea is planning the construction of their CO2nnectnow hub in Wilhelmshaven near the German north sea coast. Fluxys on the other hand is already constructing their CO2 hub near Zeebrugge port in Belgium. Their plans coincided perfectly and thus they are planning a potential collaboration for the development of the CO2 pipeline system that will run from south Germany to the north sea via Belgium’s Zeebrugge port.
