Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been identified as an important technology to achieve the ambitious emissions targets and low-carbon industrial growth plans in the Netherlands and the Flemish region in Belgium.

Responding to the need for an analytical framework to support the necessary strategic dialogue between major emitters, transport and storage operators and public authorities, the Rotterdam Climate Initiative, TNO Geosciences, the Clinton Climate Initiative and Ecofys carried out a comprehensive analysis. The resulting study informs on the costs and risks of pursuing alternative CO2 offtake pathways and the impact of near term technical design decisions on those issues.
