BIGCCS Vision and Goals

The vision of the BIGCCS Centre is to enable sustainable power generation from fossil fuels based on cost-effective CO2 capture, safe transport, and underground storage of CO2.

The BIGCCS Centre develops new knowledge and technology required to accelerate deployment of large scale CCS, through international co-operation. Innovation and value creation is promoted throughout the CO2 value chain.

Research areas:

  • CO2 capture – power generation and industry
  • CO2 transport
  • CO2 storage
  • CO2 value chain
