Port of Antwerp is taking yet another important step in the transition to a sustainable, lower emissions port. Eight leading players in the port area – Air Liquide, BASF, Borealis, INEOS, ExxonMobil, Fluxys, Port of Antwerp and Total – have signed a collaboration agreement as a first move towards the possible development of Carbon Capture, Utilisation & Storage (CCUS) infrastructure.
The consortium will carry out a joint study into the economic and technical feasibility of such facilities. CCUS applications can make an important contribution towards achieving climate goals.
More impact through collaboration
To put this into practice eight leading players in the port area have joined forces. Air Liquide, BASF, Borealis, INEOS, ExxonMobil, Fluxys, Port of Antwerp and Total have signed a collaboration agreement to investigate the feasibility of facilities for Carbon Capture, Utilisation & Storage (CCUS) in the port. These facilities would be of the “open access” type, available to the entire industrial community in the port.
