The Netherlands and Belgium have signed an agreement in Antwerp today to cooperate more in the field of transport and storage of CO2.

Both countries want to make the industry more sustainable through cross-border transport of CO2 between ports and industry, such as in Antwerp, Ghent, Rotterdam and Zeeland.

Both countries are also committed to future storage of Belgian and Dutch CO2 in empty gas and oil fields under the North Sea.

The agreement was signed by economic affairs and climate minister, Micky Adriaansens, deputy Prime Minister Vincent Van Quickenborne (Belgium) and ministers Zuhal Demir (Flanders) and Philippe Henry (Wallonia).

Minister Micky Adriaansens (EZK) says: ‘The transport and storage of CO2 is not an end in itself. It is one of the ways to make our industry more sustainable and to reduce CO2 reduce. This is important for the climate objectives and the economy.’
