Norway wants to store all European CO2 under the North Sea

According to Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store, Norway wants to store all the CO2 produced in Europe. “Without the capture and subsequent storage of the greenhouse gas, it will not be possible to achieve climate protection goals,” Store said Monday in Oslo after a meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. He knows the fears in Germany, Store added, alluding to Germany’s rejection of so-called CCS technology. But Norway has a great deal of good experience in storing CO2 at a depth of 3,000 meters under the North Sea. In the future, storage facilities will be able to store all the greenhouse gases produced in Europe. “We have experience and we know it’s there. It’s a safe place to keep it.” Norway later wants to use carbon dioxide as a raw material again.
