Northern Croatia

  • This region covers the Zagreb and the Croatian part of the Pannonian basin
  • CO2capture could be developed as part of geothermal operations since geothermal produced brine is saturated with CO2 and methane
  • CO2 captured at industrial facilities could be used in enhanced oil recovery operations, which have been under way since 2014, and as a geofluid in geothermal operations across the region
  • Geological CO2 storage capacity has already been evaluated as part of the EU-funded projects, CASTOR and EU Geocapacity
