The purpose of CO2 capture and storage (CCS) is to minimize CO2 emissions from fossil fuels, which are still needed by our energy system. SINTEF conducts research on the whole value chain for CO2 capture, transport and storage.
Catalysis is involved in 85-90 % of all chemicals production. SINTEF has extensive experience within both homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis. Our projects are often directed towards understanding the operation of the catalyst and the interplay between the catalyst and its process. We work closely with partners in academia and Norwegian and international industry.
