Geothermal CCS

The Croatian Hydrocarbon Agency is the initiator and promoter of the Croatian project for the permanent disposal of CO2 in geological structures - GT CCS, which has been on the PCI list (the European Commission's list of energy projects of common interest).

The GT CCS project relates to the transportation and permanent storage of CO2 from emitters in Croatia and Hungary, which are located along the border between HR and the EU. The project is designed so that the operator of the transportation system takes the CO2 from the emitters, mainly cement factories in Hungary and Croatia, and transports it via pipelines to the location of the injection plant in Bockovac in Osijek-Baranja County. The infrastructure includes pipelines for CO2 transportation, facilities for cooling and liquefaction of CO2 and all the equipment required for processing and injecting the CO2 for the purpose of permanent storage.

The estimated capacity of permanent storage at this site is 15.77 million tons of CO2 over a period of 25 years.



Consolidating resources within a legislative act increases the energy system efficiency by reducing administrative barriers.
