About us

CarbonCuts pioneers geological onshore CO2 storage for a greener tomorrow. Being a team of deep subsurface experts, we’re a key player in the fast-growing CCS sector. Guided by Denmark’s Climate Act,  we tackle climate change through innovation, collaboration, and environmental responsibility.

We plan to develop and operate 'Project Ruby,' a CO2 storage facility in the Rødby Structure in Lolland. The area has been designated by the Danish state for its geological suitability for CO₂ storage. Rødby Structure is ideally located to import and permanently store CO2 from both Denmark and the Baltic region.

In June 2024, The Ministry of Climate, Energy, and Utilities awarded CarbunCuts an exploration licence. Exploration is expected to last three years before a final investment decision is made.

Headquartered in Kgs. Lyngby and as a subsidiary of BlueNord, which owns a significant share of the Danish Underground Consortium (DUC), CarbonCuts has access to extensive knowledge of the energy sector and the Danish subsurface. BlueNord's insights and capital strengthen CarbonCuts' position as a CO₂ storage operator
