The Council of State concluded today that the ecological research has shown that the nitrogen deposition of Porthos has no significant effects on nearby nature reserves.

It is expected that 2.5 million tons of CO2 per year will soon be captured and permanently stored by Porthos.

The final investment decision is now being prepared by Porthos. The aim is to start construction in early 2024. The construction of the Porthos system takes about two years. Porthos is expected to be operational from 2026.
