Germany and Switzerland plan a network of gas pipelines to transport CO2

Germany and Switzerland are reportedly planning to build a branched network of gas pipelines to transport and store CO2 captured in the North Sea area .

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology is considered a crucial solution for the two countries with a view to sustainability and zero polluting emissions by 2050.

The captured CO2 can be used in new products or stored deep underground , preventing its release into the atmosphere.

In Switzerland, projects such as  the government-funded DemoUpCARMA are exploring the transport of CO2 by train and ship to Iceland for permanent storage through natural rock formations.

In this potential collaboration, Germany intends to develop a network that could extend to Basel , Switzerland, for the collection and transport of captured CO2.

Discussions are already underway between German suppliers and the Swiss authorities.
