The proposed Carbon Capture Project aims to develop a cost effective 250 MWe CO2 capture facility at the Eemshaven power plant in the North Netherlands (borough of Eemsmond, circa 35km North of Groningen).

The proposal covers the full CCS chain and consist of a post-combustion capture unit using amine solvent technology, which will be connected to an onshore depleted gas field by 2015 and aims to store in excess of 7 million tonnes over a ten year period, depending on the – by the Dutch Government – selected storage field
