NEWEST_CCUS: Technologies for Carbon Capture, Utilisation & Storage

SINTEF Energi is responsible for the activity on CO2 capture from Waste-to-Energy plants by oxy-fuel combustion and hybrid technologies with CO2 membranes.

SINTEF will be the national sub-project leader for Norway within NEWEST-CCUS and will perform research on the oxy-fuel technology and assess its application as a hybrid method in combination with CO2 membrane capture in collaboration with RETURKRAFT.

SINTEF Energy Research's oxy-fuel combustion research facilities used in
NEWEST-CCUS.

The norwegian industrial partners acting as industrial advisers are:

The Waste-to-Energy plant operators:

The gas and membranes supplier:

Test centre for developing CO2 capture technologies:


The project is gathering research and industrial partners from:

  • UK
  • Norway
  • Germany
  • the Netherlands

The project is an ERA-NET cofund ACT funded project led by the University of Edinburgh.
