About NCCS

Europe is steering towards a net zero-CO2 emission economy. "To make that possible, we need to maint a inahigh level of security of supply, low cost of energy while at the same time maintaining the very crucial process-industrie sin Europe. But industrial companies have to operate very differently in 2050 than today if we are to reach our climate targets. It is very hard to see this happening without a huge deployment of CCS across Europe”,says Tord Lien, NCCS Chairman of the Board."That's why a research centre like NCCS, where industry,R&D, authorities and academia cooperate to fast-track CCS deployment in Norway, Europe and the world, is so important".

NCCS is an international research cooperation on CO2 capture, transport and storage (CCS), co-financed by the Research Council of Norway, industry and research partners.

Our goals

NCCS is:

  • is a long-term, stable research collaboration, teaming up with major CCS research and innovation efforts globally and a world-leading CCS industry partnership

  • is an industry-driven Centre, allowing industry to influence the research priorities of the Centre

  • allows flexible ways of interaction driven by the needs of the industry

  • provides access to world-class researchers and CCS research infrastructure

  • synergizes with international efforts to solve common topics of CCS interest through strategic international partnerships
