The Dutch Government’s plans to provide €3.1 million (£2.7m) of public funding for the construction of CO2 transport infrastructure has been approved by the European Commission.

Developed by OCAP CO2, it will transport waste carbon dioxide from energy production to greenhouses in PrimA4a horticulture area, where it will be used for crop growth.

Currently these greenhouses produce their own CO2 using heating systems such as cogeneration systems or gas-fired boilers.

During summer, when heating is not needed, the greenhouses use their own heating systems.

Using excess waste CO2 instead will reduce emissions by 21 kilotonnes a year.
