3 largest European ports to be used to capture, bury 10m tonnes of CO2 emissions under North Sea

The biggest project of its kind in the world is where 10m tonnes of CO2 will be captured & buried in 3 largest ports in Europe-Rotterdam, Antwerp & Ghent, under the North Sea. The project hoped to complete by 2030, but the scale of storage in 2 empty gas fields is unprecedented & raises questions about how the CO2 will affect the deep subsurface. The Dutch govt targets a 49% reduction in emissions by 2030.
