Last summer, US-based investment company Postlane Partners officially took over Shell’s refinery in the town of Fredericia and renamed it Crossbridge Energy Fredericia (CBE). Since then, there has been no shortage of announcements on rendering the refinery more climate-friendly and eventually climate-neutral.

Now EnergyWatch is able to unveil a large project, which the company has been developing in southern Denmark. By 2026 at the latest, the refinery will capture 400,000 tonnes of CO2 annually for later transport and safe storage.
