An ethanol plant in Norrköping, Sweden, owned by Lantmännen is another opportunity that has been identified as a case where a high purity stream of CO2 could be captured and shipped to storage locations in the North Sea. The plant recently expanded its production capacity, and is the only ethanol plant in the Nordic countries with a high enough capacity to be suitable for BECCS.
