CCS Project

Bio-Refinery Project

A pilot, full chain CCS project which is part of an advanced bioethanol production plant currently being developed at the Sisak refinery site, where advanced bioethanol from biomass will be produced. More specifically, CO2 will be captured and transported via the existing pipeline infrastructure to be stored at the depleted oil and gas fields which are found 40 km away from the site. The project intends to capture, transport and inject 55.000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
