The main objective of NORDICCS is to boost the deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) in the Nordic countries by creating a durable network of excellence integrating R&D capacities and relevant industry with the purpose to:
  • Provide Nordic industry-driven leadership within CCS innovation and realization
  • Demonstrate how CCS can contribute to the Nordic portfolio of climate change mitigation options
  • Enable the Nordic countries to join forces to become pioneers in large-scale implementation of CCS
  • Multi-contextual focus to utilize Nordic differences for broad stakeholder and global relevance
  • Strengthen the competitive power of the region by combining complementary capacities of the Nordic countries

Illustration of the NORDICCS concept with reference to the activities defined: 1. Assumptions and premises needed for realisation of CCS; 2. Geology: Nordic map of the storage potential; 3. Communication; 4. Transport-related issues of CCS; 5. Energy analysis of CCS; 6. Integration of CCS with industrial processing.

Operating under the Top-level Research Initiative (TRI)
NORDICCS is the Nordic CCS platform involving the major CCS stakeholders in the five Nordic countries. NORDICCS is financed by Nordic Innovation and the partners themselves, and has a planned operation of five years.
