Vanja Buvik (SINTEF Industry) initially joined NCCS in 2017 as one of the Centre’s first PhD students. She is now Task 2 lead.
From 19-21 June, the global CCS community gathered in Trondheim for the twelfth Trondheim CCS conference (TCCS-12). This was a record-breaking conference for TCCS in many ways, with the largest number of participants attended, nationalities represented, and abstracts submitted. While the conference included topics from the entire CCS value chain, the main messages conveyed were the necessity of international collaboration, increased R&D activity, and strong government policies.
CO₂ capture and storage (CCS) is a promising solution for reducing CO₂ emissions and mitigating climate change. However, before CCS can be widely deployed, a large network of high-pressure transport pipelines must be established to transport the captured CO₂ to storage sites. An essential aspect of pipeline design is avoid running ductile fracture (RDF), which is when a pipeline defect develops into a fracture under pressure forces from the escaping fluid.
On 27 October, Norwegian CCS (NCCS) Centre Director Mona Mølnvik participated in a panel discussion at the EU’s annual Carbon Capture, Utilisation and…
At Arendalsuka, NCCS Centre Director Mona Mølnvik interviewed Hafslund Oslo Celsio’s CCS Director Jannicke Bjerkås about Celsio’s progress on building the first full-scale CCS facility for waste incineration.
The Illinois Basin – Decatur Project (IBDP) has successfully demonstrated the safe geologic storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) at an almost commercial scale. We are delighted to announce that a subset of the data from this unique project is now available on the CO2DataShare open access digital portal.
