「RePair社・EnEarth社間の提携は、ギリシャ北部を地中海東部のグリーン・ハブへと変身させることを目指す画期的なイニシアティブである。この協力は、直接空気回収・貯留(DACS)ハブ確立の第一歩を示し、同地域全体における同様のプロジェクトの先例となる。この提携は、既存のインフラを再利用することで、産業・環境持続可能性に新しいアプローチを導入している」と、EnEarth社CO2貯留担当長(Head of Carbon Storage)のNikolas Rigas氏は述べた。


Energean社プリノス貯留プロジェクト(プリノスCO2)は、欧州復興・レジリエンス・ファシリティ(European Recovery and Resilience Facility)の下、ギリシャ政府から1億5,000万ユーロの資金を受け取る予定であり、欧州共通利益プロジェクト(European Projects of Common Interest)の第6次ユニオンリストに含まれている。

The companies will use RepAir’s DAC technology to capture CO2 and store it in the Prinos saline aquifer in Kavala, Greece.

The project will begin operations in early 2026, storing the first kiloton of carbon dioxide removed.  When fully developed by 2028, EnEarth’s injection capacity in Prinos will be able to service up to 3 million tons of CO2 a year.

“The partnership between Repair and EnEarth is a groundbreaking initiative aimed at transforming Northern Greece into a green hub for the Eastern Mediterranean. This collaboration marks the first step in establishing a Direct Air Capture and Storage (DACS) hub, setting a precedent for similar projects across the region. By repurposing existing infrastructure, the partnership introduces a novel approach to industrial environmental sustainability.” said Nikolas Rigas, Head of Carbon Storage, EnEarth.

The partnership includes the installation of RepAir’s carbon capture system on the premises of the onshore facility of Energean at Prinos.  In parallel, carbon from point source emitters in the Mediterranean region will be transferred to the Prinos storage complex for safe and permanent storage.

Energean’s Prinos storage project (Prinos CO2) is in line to receive €150M in funding from the Greek government under the European Recovery and Resilience Facility and is included in the sixth Union list of European Projects of Common Interest.
