Vattenfall’s CCS project
CCS is a part of the solution to the world’s problems with increasing amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
Vattenfall has ventured into the development of CCS technologies in order to make it possible to take a large step towards reduced carbon dioxide emissions. Since 2001, Vattenfall has been working on developing methods for capturing CO2 from large coal-fired power plants and storing it underground.
We work to develop safe, cost-efficient and viable technologies that can contribute to drastic reductions of CO2-emissions. This work includes all parts of the chain - capture, transport and storage. Another important part of the project is to identify and assess the environmental impact that capture, transport and storage of CO2 entails.
