The Port of Antwerp-Bruges (PoAB) has signed the Oslo Declaration; a collective commitment to promote CCUS technologies. Other parties signing the declaration included North Sea Port, ArcelorMittal Belgium, ENGIE, Equinor, Fluxys, Air Liquide, TotalEnergies and more.

‘Carbon capture, utilization and storage is crucial for decarbonising the Belgian economy,’ PoAB commented on LinkedIn. ‘This declaration signifies the collective commitment to promote CCUS technologies, which are indispensable tools in our goal to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. There is no time to waste: we must act now to minimise our impact on the climate!’

The port has also joined with Fluxys to develop a CO2 compression plant in Zeebrugge. Captured CO2 from (among others) Belgian and German industries will be transported via the C-grid pipeline network to this collection and compression plant. From Zeebrugge it can be further transported via an undersea pipeline for permanent storage in Norway’s old oil and gas reservoirs.
