EU CO2 infrastructure in bloom: PCI/PMI candidates spread South and East, become multimodal, cross-border, and storage-centred

On the 21st of December, the European Commission published the 1st list of Union candidate projects in the thematic area of cross-border Carbon Dioxide transport and storage networks applying for Project of Common Interest (PCI) or Project of Mutual Interest (PMI) status. Stakeholders have until the 16th of March to answer the open consultation. We encourage CCS stakeholders to answer the open consultation for which we at Bellona offer our overview of and take on the candidate projects and their potential to contribute towards the rapid upscale of CCS deployment and by extension, industrial decarbonisation.
