Greenport Scandinavia CCUS Hub
The first full end-to-end value chain

Artboard 3@2x

Storing the first CO2 in 2026


The Greenport Scandinavia value chain will evolve from transporting CO2 by truck in 2026, to pipeline transported CO2 from Aalborg to Hirtshals in 2029.

We expect the infrastructure to expand and the volumes to increase significantly after 2031. 

  • Capture, liquefaction and local storage at the emitter site 
  • Transporting CO2 to the CCUS hub in Port of Hirtshals
  • Temporary CO2 storage at the CCUS hub in Port of Hirtshals.
  • CO2 transport to the storage site 
  • Storing the CO2 in Greensand – further along also nearshore or onshore. 



The first CO2 vessel is set to depart from Port of Hirtshals, marking the commencement of its development into a leading European CO2 import-export hub.


The ship will be loaded with liquefied CO2, captured at regional biogas plants. It will be transported by truck to the temporary storage facility in the port before it is shipped to Greensand for safe and permanent storage.

2029 and onwards

In addition to CO2 transport by truck and ship, we aim for a CO2 pipeline from Aalborg to Hirtshals to be operational by 2029 – an important milestone in the establishment of a Danish CO2 infrastructure.


The pipeline infrastructure could be integrated with pipeline infrastructure in the rest of Denmark and Europe in the coming years, unlocking the full potential of the Danish storage capacity and playing an important part in achieving the climate goals.


The vision is to establish CCUS activities and create one of Europe’s largest CO2 import and export hubs in Port of Hirtshals, Denmark.


Greenport Scandinavia will create commercial CCUS value chains across geographical and industrial sectors. 


Greenport Scandinavia aims to support the Paris Agreement (COP21) and contribute to limiting global warming to 1.5°C.
