Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is seen as a promising technology to meet climate goals. In a not-so-distant future, the CCS clusters consisting of different CO2 sources with large variations in flow rates, operating conditions, and impurity content are expected. This scenario challenges the transport operations and precludes reliable flow of CO2 to the permanent storage site.

MACON CCS aims to aid in CCS becoming a widespread, efficient climate policy instrument by tackling identified barriers in monitoring and controlling upcoming CCS transport networks.

The project is preparing the groundwork to target pressing data gaps for the development of efficient and robust predictive flow models, along with sensor technology assessments for monitoring of CCS streams in real-time.

The scientific results of MACON CCS will have the potential to enable large-scale deployment of CCS from industrial sources and the long-term business case of the Norwegian large-scale project for CO2 transport and storage infrastructure (Northern Lights).

To unlock the potential, MACON CCS brings together key industrial and research players in a consortium aiming for excellence in innovation and research.

The project is coordinated by SINTEF Energy Research, who, along with NTNU, undertakes the core of the research activities and educate PhD and MSc students.
