Danish opposition sees no chance of broad interparty deal to cut farming emissions
Denmark’s Liberal Party has threatened to leave interparty talks over cutting emissions from agriculture, a key part of the country’s push to reach its ambitious climate goal of cutting emissions by 70 percent by 2030.
Liberal Party’s agricultural spokesman, Troels Lund Poulsen, told the Information newspaper that he saw no choice of moving forward unless the left-wing bloc lowers its ambitions for reducing nitrogen pollution.
“We will not sign an agreement that states 13,100 tonnes of nitrogen reduction. Not at all,” he said. “There will be no broad agreement. It must be an agreement with one of the sides. That’s where we are now.”
In a press release issued on Tuesday, the company said that it had decided to cite its first carbon-capture facility at Avedøre, as part of its involvement in the Green Fuels for Denmark Power-to-X project.
“If Green Fuels for Denmark is realised, Copenhagen could become a showcase example of how new and existing energy technology can be combined to deliver on the vast European ambitions for sustainable fuels,” said Anders Nordstrøm, Vice President and head of Ørsted’s hydrogen and Power-to-X activities.
