CO₂ infrastructure for Belgium

As a key infrastructure partner, we want to accelerate the energy transition with infrastructure for different molecules. We aim to offer customers an annual transport capacity of 30 million tonnes of CO₂ by 2030.

To achieve this, CO₂ networks in Belgium need to connect industrial areas and neighbouring countries to each other.

Step-by-step development

Joint development

Since early 2021 we have been preparing in Belgium the necessary CO₂ infrastructure in cooperation with industry, partners, government authorities, operators in neighbouring countries, distribution system operators and other stakeholders. We are doing everything we can to offer our customers the first transmission capacity for CO₂ by 2026.

In line with needs

We are developing transmission infrastructure for CO₂ in line with the needs of industrial areas.

Connected to neighbouring countries

We are planning connections between industrial areas and with neighbouring countries in order to build the CO₂ networks into integrated systems.

Focus on competitive tariffs

Thanks to connections with neighbouring countries, we offer high-capacity infrastructure that is available at competitive rates thanks to the scale effect.

Crossroads for sustainability

In other words, we are laying the foundation for sustainably cementing Belgium's role as an energy crossroads by making the country a CO₂ hub for the economy in Belgium and North-West Europe.

Long-term vision CO₂ network: Belgium hub for CO₂ transit and export

CO₂ demand and supply levels in specific clusters need to be matched. Via mutual exchanges between different interested parties (suppliers and offtakers) several promising infrastructure proposals are launched.
