SINTEF is a renowned global research player in CO2 sequestration
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.
BIGCCS - International CCS Research Centre
Enabling sustainable power generation from fossil fuels based on cost-effektive CO2 capture, and safe transport and underground storage of CO2
Accelerating a shift towards deployment of CCS in Europe through a cross-border CO2 transport infrastructure
Building the foundation in Trondheim for the green transition
For the first time, a major European research infrastructure project is being led by a country from outside the EU.
4 November: Kick-off for the Paris Climate Agreement and a new CCS research centre
With the new climate agreement which comes into effect on Friday 4 November, the world is committed to cutting its greenhouse gas emissions. All countries must create their own national plans for cutting emissions – and then report on their progress. The goal is to prevent the global temperature rising by more than 2 degrees by the year 2100.
Green cooling with CO2
Man-made refrigeration gases threaten the Earth's climate. The use of natural compounds like CO2 is an effective counter-measure.
