The effort is in line with the Danish government's national targeted 70 pct reduction of carbon emissions by 2030. According to the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities, the Danish part of the North Sea will be able to store up to 16Gt of carbon.
Project participants include Aalborg Portland, Ineos Oil & Gas Denmark, Wintershall Dea, Maersk Drilling, GEUS and over 20 other businesses, research institutes and universities. (Source: Cementir Group, PR, Cement News, 9 Sept., 2021) Contact: Cementir Group, email@example.com, www.cimentas.com.tr

REintegrate's new decentralized production technology offers green e-methanol identical to fossil methanol, from renewable energy sources and CO2 from bio-waste. E-methanol provides a convenient transition to environmentally friendly fuels and chemicals with an ultra-high greenhouse gas reduction and a competitive rice to similar products such as green bio-products.REintegrate's process facilitates the re-cycle of CO2 emissions and the by-products (oxygen and heat) can be used in the industrial sector and for district heating, according to the company website.
With about 90 per cent of world trade transported by sea, global shipping accounts for nearly three per cent of the world's CO2 emissions. Maersk aims to have a carbon-neutral fleet by 2030 to meet its target of net-zero emissions by 2050, according to the release. (Source: A.P. Moller-Maersk, GFM News, 18 Aug., 2021)

Carrying 80-90 pct of global trade in a less carbon-intensive manner than other freight transport modes, international maritime shipping nonetheless represents about 2-3 pct of the world's total annual greenhouse gas emissions. Without immediate and concerted efforts, emissions from the sector could increase between 50 pct and 250 pct by 2050.

The three-phase project is expected to be finalized by 2030. The first stage, which could be operational by as early as 2023, will comprise a 10 MW electrolysis plant producing renewable hydrogen for trucks and potentially buses. By 2027, the stage two facility equipped with a 250 MW electrolysis plant will combine the production of renewable hydrogen with captured CO2 from combustion of municipal waste or biomass to produce renewable methanol for maritime vessels and renewable jet fuel for planes. The last phase will upgrade the electrolysis plant's capacity to 1.3 GW and capture more CO2.
In addition to major partner investments, the project is seeking substantial funding from Innovation Fund Denmark.

The project will establish a 1.3 GW electrolysis facility in the Greater Copenhagen area capable of generating hydrogen from water in a process that will be powered entirely with offshore wind power. The 'green' hydrogen generated by the project can be used as fuel for heavy road vehicles and/or converted into e-methanol for maritime shipping and e-kerosene for aviation fuel.
At full capacity, the new Danish facility could reportedly reduce carbon emissions from transport by 850,000 tonnes, charting the course for green agenda leading European countries to meet the 2050 net zero emissions target.
The facility is expected to open in 2023 with a 10-MW electrolysis capacity. (Source: EU, Consultancy.eu , 30 July, 2020)

To reach its goal, carbon neutral ships must be commercially available by 2030, and the shipping industry must be fully transitioned into using new carbon neutral fuels and supply chains by 2050.
The Paris Climate Accord excluded pollution from international shipping and aviation in its goal setting on climate change. Because shippers cross multiple jurisdictions in the course of each trip, they were left to police themselves.
