LONDON — Viking CCS, the Harbour Energy-led CO2 transportation and storage development in eastern England, has entered a commercial arrangement with waste management provider Cory Group.
This involves transportation and storage of shipped CO2 emissions from Cory’s energy from waste facilities. Cory operates one plant in Bexley, southeast London, which last year removed about 790,000 metric tons of residual waste from landfill.
It is now developing a second facility, Riverside 2, on the same site, and is looking to install carbon capture technology at both facilities to allow them to capture close to 1.3 MM metric tons/year of CO2 by 2030.
From there, the CO2 would be sent for storage in the depleted Viking gas fields in the southern North Sea.
Cory transports most of the waste it processes via a fleet of tugs and barges on the River Thames.
