Danish Carbon Capture and Storage Strategy

Last updated: 16 November 2022

The Danish CO2 capture and storage strategy sets out plans for the capture and storage of CO2 in the same subsoil from which fossil fuels were extracted and for capture and storage technologies to be deployed in sectors where decarbonisation is hardest, such as waste incineration and cement production.

The government earmarked DKK 16 billion in subsidies to carbon capture and storage projects, to be distributed in two phases. The first phase will see support distributed to companies by 2022.

The first Danish facilities for carbon capture and storage are to be operational by 2025, for annual emission reductions estimated at 400 000 tonnes of CO2.
