ESG Today reports that Ørsted will install its carbon sequestration technologies at two sites in Denmark to achieve this. The first will be installed at the wood chip-fired Asnæs Power Station and the second, at the Avedøre Power Station near Copenhagen.

Ørsted officials say that the plants could begin capturing carbon emissions starting 2025, with the target of around 430.000 tons being captured and stored from the year after that.

Mogens Hagelskær, Deputy Director of the Danish Energy Agency, said that "now, they can start to establish capture, transport, and storage of CO2 on a full scale."

The captured carbon emissions are said to be stored in the Northern Lights storage reservoir in the North Sea and Ørsted also announced a partnership with Microsoft which implies removing 2.76 million tons of CO2 on behalf of the American tech company.
