For å nå 2-gradersmålet, må verden ta i bruk teknologi for fangst, transport og lagring av CO2. Ikke bare fra industriutslipp og kraftproduksjon, men også fra biomasse. Paris-avtalen betyr at CO2-håndtering (CCS) også må bidra til løsninger som fjerner CO2-molekyler fra naturens kretsløp. Norge har interesse av at CCS får en vid utbredelse, blant annet Read More
To realize CCS in a cost efficient and reliable way, it is very important to precisely determine the properties of CO2. The CO2 in CCS will not be pure, but contain contaminants depending on the CO2 source and capture technique employed. These contaminants can drastically alter the properties of CO2. Read Sigurd W.

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 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). When CLIMIT was started 10 years ago, the goal was improved and more sustainable technologies for the capture, transport Read More
BIGCCS researcher Peder Eliasson is interviewed by GEMINI.no about his research activities on CO2 storage. In this article he explains what is done to ensure that the stored CO2 actually remains underground. Read the article here (in Norwegian).
