Status to date
The partners in CO2next are currently exploring the feasibility of building an independent hub terminal for reception and delivery of liquid CO2 on the Maasvlakte in the Port of Rotterdam. The planning includes a project and permitting timeline.
Aligned approach with the Aramis CCS initiative
It is envisaged that the CCS Aramis initiative will become a launching customer of the CO2next terminal. CO2next and the CCS Aramis initiative are jointly exploring the feasibility of the development of a CO2 value chain.
CO2next and the CCS Aramis initiative have a joint participation and permitting approach using the Rijks Coördinatie Regeling (RCR).
Call for expressions of interest
As part of the feasibility study CO2next has been exploring market demand through an open season approach targeting interest in CO2 services, and focussed beyond the capacity needs of Aramis.
The non-binding expressions of interest covered:
- Unloading of CO2 vessels
- Temporary storage of CO2
- Pressurization of CO2 & send out
- Re-loading of CO2 vessels
- Unloading & loading of CO2 via railcar (optional)
The open season approach took place from December 2021 until end of January 2022.
