is registered as a subsidiary of Borg Havn IKS2 was a collaborative project between 18 partner companies, including Norske Skog Saugsbrugs, FREVAR, Sarpsborg Avfallsenergi, Kvitebjørn Bio-El and Borregaard, as well as Borg Havn, which will host a future CO2 terminal.2 The partners started at the turn of the year 2017/2018 to survey the possibilities for establishing carbon capture and storage (CCS) from emission sources in Fredrikstad, Sarpsborg and Halden. The project mapped the possibilities for capturing and storing up to 630,000 tonnes of CO2.

During this period, Borg CO2 signed an MoU with Northern Lights.

First cooperation agreement between Northern lights and an industrial cluster Borg CO2
is registered as a subsidiary of Borg Havn IKS2 a feasibility study involving partners from, among other things, the process industry, waste, logistics, energy, technology suppliers and academia. This is the first cooperation agreement between Northern lights and an industrial cluster, and such an agreement ensures a large volume and increases the probability that the project will be successful, and sets the standard going forward. Stormkast Utvikling by Pål Mikkelsen, . as well as the Norwegian Center for Circular Economy by Camilla Brox lead the project.

The project is a boost for the reindustrialisation and decarbonisationof the entire Glomma region, says Pål Mikkelsen.

The CO2is planned to be transported from the industrial companies to a common terminal at Borg Havn (Øra in Fredrikstad) and will be transported from there by a new type of adapted ship to a receiving terminal in Øygarden for temporary storage, before injection and permanent storage in a reservoir located 2,600 meters below the seabed in the northern part of the North Sea.

Northern Lights delivers transport and storage of CO2 as a service and aims to enable emission-free industrial production in Europe.

The collaboration with Northern Lights is important for the further work in the development of capture and storage solutions in the region. Without the pioneering work Northern Lights has done in establishing a third-party storage, it would not have been possible to establish carbon capture in our regionsays Tore Lundestad, general manager at Borg CO2 and Port Director at Borg Havn.2 og Havnedirektør i Borg Havn.

The project aims to start storing carbon from the first half of 2024, and that it will create between 30-50 direct jobs in the region, and a further approx. 200 if you include associated tasks within maintenance, the service industry etc.

We are incredibly happy about this collaboration. CO2management is important for reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement and emission-free industrial production will be an important competitive advantage in the Europe of the future. Northern Lights can offer safe and permanent storage of CO2 and if this project is realised, it will help preserve and create new climate-neutral industrial workplaces in the region, says Børre Jacobsen, CEO of Northern Lights.

With support from CLIMIT*, the partners have mapped the basis for establishing a new profitable industry based on carbon capture and have drawn up good business models which are now being worked on further. A profitability of NOK 1,250/tonne is calculated for collection from pipes delivered to Northern Lights, with returns from 2025 - one year after planned start-up.

 Northern LightsNorthern Lights provides transport and storage of CO2 as a service. The project aims to enable emission-free industrial production in Europe. Northern Lights initially has the capacity to transport, inject and store up to 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year.2 per år. The facility is scheduled to be commissioned in 2024. The receiving terminal for CO2 is being built in the Naturgassparken industrial area in Øygarden municipality. There are plans to increase capacity to 5 million tonnes per year in a second development phase. Northern Lights is built and operated by Northern Lights JV DA. The company is owned by Equinor, Norske Shell and Total E&P Norge. Website:
Om Borg CO2is registered as a subsidiary of Borg Havn IKS2 and the company's purpose is to organise, develop, assess, plan and map for testing technology for carbon capture and storage, primarily for industry in Østfold. Since the turn of the year 2017/2018, the company has been working on mapping the possibilities for establishing carbon capture and storage in an industrial cluster in Eastern Norway. The project has 18 partners from process industry, waste, logistics, energy, technology suppliers and academia. Many of the key players in carbon capture participate together with important local and regional companies: Borg Havn, FREVAR KF, NORSUS, Kvitebjørn Bio-El, Fortum Oslo Varme, EGE Oslo, Stormkast Utvikling, Equinor, IFE, CO2 Capsol, Borregaard, Acinor, Compact Carbon Capture, Biobe, Norske Skog Saugbrugs, Østfold Energi, Geminor og Sarpsborg Avfallsenergi. A capture potential of up to 630,000 tonnes of CO2/year from 5 sources in the region has been mapped and work is underway to establish a joint terminal at Borg Harbor (Øra, Fredrikstad).
