Transport of captured CO2 by rail, ship and pipeline

Climate Change Mitigation

Metric and threshold:

Transport modalities that contribute to the transport of CO2 to eligible permanent sequestration sites are eligible, only if the asset operates below the leakage/tonne of CO2 threshold. Leakage/tonne of CO2 transported from head(s) of the transport network to injection point(s) is <0.5%, and the CO2 is delivered to a taxonomy-eligible permanent sequestration site or to other transport modalities which lead directly to an eligible permanent sequestration site are eligible. 
Assets or activities that enable carbon capture and use (CCU) will deem all the connected elements of an existing transport network ineligible. Assets which increase the flexibility and management of an existing network, without expanding the network to include carbon capture and use activities is eligible. This criterion is subject to regular review.
