Experts from Klif arrived in Sandefjord, where Hauge and a large group of environmental activists had taken action Monday morning. “Getting Klif on the pitch is important, and we are pleased that they have cast aside their other obligations and come down here to investigate this very nasty environmental cause.”, said Hauge.

Illegal waste storage

Oleon’s managing director in Oslo has already admitted that there are substances in some tanks that they are not authorized to receive. The director has in turn launched a “blame game” on DVS AS, who delivered the waste to Oleon, and believes that his company has been deceived.

DVS AS dismissed this : ”We have been completely open about what we have delivered, and we have submitted declarations stating approximate percentage amount of sediment, and total product quantity. We have documented all we shall prove,” said Jan Henning Legreid from DVS AS.

Concerned about destruction of evidence, Bellona continued operations throughout the day. “We have sailed onboard our environmental ship M/S Kallinika, and we will block any tanker until Klif has been here and the police have secured the evidence they need,” said Frederic Hauge.

The NZIA is a golden opportunity to ensure appropriate development of much-needed CO2 storage capacity, enabling industrial decarbonisation and a Just Transition by the retention of important welfare-carrying jobs in the harder-to-abate sector, while at the same time ensuring the proportionate contribution of Oil and Gas companies.

Europe’s Hydrogen Journey: It’s Time to Move from Hype to Prudent Planning 

Overall, the target setting in the EU is an example that other regions of the world should follow in terms of creating demand for hydrogen in the right sectors, while backing it up with the renewable generation deployment to meet the demand from the electrolysers. However, the supportive landscape that could ensure targets are met is largely missing, leaving the EU strategy towards hydrogen use ambiguous and thus less effective.
