CCS Project


ANRAV aims to develop the first full CCS value chain project in Bulgaria and in Eastern Europe. The objective is to capture the CO2 streams at the Devnya cement plant in Varna (HeidelbergCement group) and though an onshore and offshore pipeline system to store them in a depleted gas field in the Black Sea. Subject to regulatory and permitting aspects, the full-chain CCS project could be operational on 2028.
