NCCS kicks off

While BIGCCS is winding down operations, NCCS – the Norwegian CCS Research Centre – is kicking off. NCCS is one of the new FME research project that was given the green light by the Research Council of Norway on May 26, 2016.

NCCS aims to fast-track CCS development by addressing remaining barriers identified in demonstration and industry projects through industry-driven and science-based innovation.

The NCCS kick-off seminar was held in Trondheim on November 4, 2016, the very same day the Paris Climate agreement went into force.
