At ROAD, the safety of people and the environment comes first. The capture, transport and storage of CO2 is regulated by law, with strict government monitoring.

To meet all legal requirements, ROAD will draft an environment impact assessment (MER) and apply for the necessary licences. Any risks and effects for people and the environment will be closely mapped out in the MER. This concerns the possible risks and effects of capture, transport and storage on land and the sea bed, surface water, natural habitat, flora and fauna, landscape, archaeological values and external safety. Studies will also cover any possible risk and calamity effects. The government will publish the MER and the licence applications, so stakeholders have the opportunity to react.
