Porthos is developing a project in which CO2 from industry in the Port of Rotterdam is transported and stored in empty gas fields beneath the North Sea. The CO2 that will be transported and stored by Porthos, will be captured by various companies. The companies will supply their CO2 to a collective pipeline that runs through the Rotterdam port area. The CO2 will then be pressurized in a compressor station. In May 2021, the Dutch government announced a EUR 2 billion subsidy for the Porthos project.

Speaker: Bram Herfkens, Storage Project Lead Porthos
