Norne is comprised of a set of CO2 reception facilities at Danish ports and pipelines designed for the transportation and storage of captured domestic and international CO2 emissions in two of Denmark’s existing natural underground storage structures. Designed to be a large scale, economical, and safe CO2 storage network, Norne provides CO2 emitting companies the opportunity to access an affordable and safe pathway to decrease their CO2 emissions. This will help Denmark and other countries achieve 2030 and 2050 climate goals. Norne has been designated a European Union Project of Common Interest, a priority infrastructure project with significant cross-border impacts.
Norne aims to begin storing its customers’ CO2 starting in mid-2027. The CO2 will be transported from the emitter by pipeline or ship to Norne where it will be transported to one of the existing natural underground storage structures where it will be injected in new, dedicated CO2 wells. Norne is designed for large volumes of CO2 and has the ambition to store more than 30 million tons of CO2 per year by 2030. This is equivalent to over half of Denmark’s yearly CO2 emissions.
The Inspiration for “Norne”: The name for the Norne Carbon Storage Hub draws inspiration from the Norns of Norse mythology, embodying a commitment to shaping a sustainable future. Similar to the Norns who weave the threads of destiny, our state-of-the-art hub plays a pivotal role in weaving a more responsible environmental narrative. By effectively capturing and storing carbon emissions, we aspire to influence the trajectory of climate change, providing a proactive and innovative solution for businesses and industries seeking to reduce their carbon footprint. Much like the Norns guide the fate of beings in Norse mythology, the Norne Carbon Storage Hub guides organizations towards a greener and more sustainable path, contributing to a positive legacy for generations to come.
