The Centre objective is to boost Norway's position as a leading provider of environmentally-friendly processes based on natural gas.
The CRI will through its use of advanced experimental and theoretical tools develop detailed understanding of processes on the atomic scale. The industry partners have defined selected technologies where the objective is to further strengthen their international competitive position. In addition to generic projects promoting these technologies, the CRI will establish projects on new chemistry and catalysis for chemical conversion of natural gas that potentially could lead to new conversion routes. These concepts will be based on generic insight gained in the Centre and in closely related parallel projects.
