Why is this CO​2​ project being developed?

Porthos offers companies the opportunity to reduce their CO2 emissions in the period when alternative, sustainable techniques are not yet sufficiently developed. This enables companies to contribute to the Netherlands’ climate objectives and to the energy transition

CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) is a relatively cheap measure that can already significantly reduce CO2 emissions in the short term. The long-term goal remains the sustainability of industrial production processes.
