Abstract:
This paper presents a roadmap for the development of a large-scale CO2 transport infrastructure in Europe, between 2020 and 2050, which was defined in the EU FP7 CO2Europipe project. The most important conclusions are related to the finding that the EU CCS transport infrastructure is to be led by a relatively small number of countries, who share the largest burden in the areas of CO2 capture, transport and storage. These include the countries bordering the North Sea, and those countries relying heavily on coal or lignite for their power supply (Germany, Poland the Czech Republic). It is crucial that these countries take the lead and are supported to do so, not only now, but during the whole CCS infrastructure development.
