BIGCCS Consortium Day 2015

The 2015 BIGCCS Consortium Day was held at Radisson Blu Royal Garden Hotel, Trondheim on September 22 and 23. More than 40 participants attended the event, which focused on BIGCCS innovations and potentials for industry takeaways.


In addition to presentations of selected innovations from subprogram- and task leaders, the program offered two interesting presentations from industry members. Dr. Per Ivar Karstad of Statoil shared with the audience Statoil’s views on «New Energy Solutions», while Prof. Niels Peter Christensen (Gassnova) presented results from Gassnova’s report on potential full-scale CCS projects in Norway (pre-feasibility study). The Consortium Day program and all presentations can be found in the BIGCCS eRoom (members only).

In addition to well-prepared oral presentations, and to offer a background for discussions on in-depth technical issues, BIGCCS researchers had prepared more than 30 posters for the participants to investigate. The poster sessions turned out to be a very successful part of the program. Poster presentations can be found on the BIGCCS eRoom.

In summing up the BIGCCS Consortium Day 2015, Centre Director, Dr. Mona Mølnvik underlined that the CCS activity level is now increasing and that full-scale projects are coming. In this respect, BIGCCS has proved to be an important tool in generating new CCS knowledge, which is, and will continue to be valuable in deployment of CCS technologies.
