Stockholm Exergi’s plans to build a large-scale BECCS-facility are becoming increasingly concrete. The latest milestone is that Stockholm Exergi has signed the world’s largest ever permanent carbon removal agreement with Microsoft. BECCS and its potential to contribute climate goals was also on the agenda when Minister of Climate and Environment Romina Pourmokhtari together with Finnish Minister of Environment and Climate Kai Mykkänen visited Stockholm Exergi earlier today.

“It is gratifying and important for us that the Finnish government is also showing interest in our BECCS-project. Sweden and Finland have a lot in common and I see great potential for the Nordic countries to take the lead in BECCS”, says Anders Egelrud, CEO of Stockholm Exergi.

An obvious feature of the visit was a tour of the BECCS research facility that Stockholm Exergi has been operating since 2019. The goal is to make an investment decision for the large-scale facility later this year, and in order to do so, government aid is needed.
