The CO2Europipe project aims at paving the road towards large-scale, Europe-wide infrastructure for the transport and injection of CO2 captured from industrial sources and lowemission power plants. The project, in which key stakeholders in the field of carbon capture, transport and storage (CCTS) participate, will prepare for the optimum transition from initially small-scale, local initiatives starting around 2010 towards the large-scale CO2 transport and storage that must be prepared to commence from 2015 to 2020, if near- to medium-term CCS is to be effectively realized. This transition, as well as the development of large-scale CO2 infrastructure, will be studied by developing the business case using a number of realistic scenarios. Business cases include the Rotterdam region, the Rhine-Ruhr region, an offshore pipeline from the Norwegian coast and the development of CCS in the Czech Republic and Poland.
