New BIGCCS PhD – Marcin Dutka

Marcin Dutka successfully defended his PhD thesis titled «Emissions of nitrogen oxides from partially premixed flames stabilized on a conical bluff body» on December 2. Hydrogen is present in the fuel gases of many industrial process, such as refineries, as a by-product and it is the decarbonized energy carrier in pre-combustion CO2 capture routes. Although Read More


CLIMIT 10 years – BIGCCS videos

CLIMIT celebrates its 10 year anniversary in 2015, and in that connection three video presentations have been produced with central BIGCCS researchers. See the presentations of Svend Tollak Munkejord, Malin Torsæter and Nils Anders Røkke (in Norwegian).

Research visit to enable CO2 capture from coal power plant using membranes

By Simon Roussanaly Electricity generation from coal represents 41 and 30 percent of the world and European electricity generation, respectively. In this perspective, CCS is considered a promising measure in reducing CO2 emissions and negative climate impact from power generation. As part of the BIGGCS FME Centre, promising technologies for CO2 capture such as membranes Read More
