Together with the Hanze University of Applied Sciences and the University of Groningen, Circular Energy will study the technical and social feasibility of an offshore gas-to-power production facility on the North Sea. The study will focus on the capture and permanent storage of CO₂. The three parties received a subsidy for this study from the CCUS-program of the Topsector Energiestudies.
The feasibility study, that will be carried out in 2019, should provide more insight into the costs, risks and bottlenecks surrounding the legal aspects and social acceptance of CCS. De Hanze University of Applied Sciences and the University of Groningen will examine these research questions. Circular Energy takes care of the technical questions. These questions focus on storing CO₂ in the same gas field with a new ‘Controlled Propagation’ principle to prevent mixing CO₂ and natural gas.
