COP28: How CCS can contribute to net-zero emissions

Carbon capture, transport and storage (CCS) is a crucial technological solution for reducing CO2 emissions and achieving the climate goals outlined in the Paris Agreement. It can play a significant role in decarbonising industrial sectors, and producing “clean” hydrogen. However, we still need standards and infrastructure for the large-scale CO2 transport and storage.

More matter with less art: on Hamlet and the lack of real climate action

Is it not a tragedy that humanity has so far been unable to curb its greenhouse gas emissions? If we are to mitigate global warming and meet our climate goals, we need to put an end to our paralysis of action, and demand more financial and regulatory support for climate technologies. But will we be able to do it? That is the question…

The Impact of CCS Research on the Green Transition

2050 is now less than 27 years away – when the world has set a goal for becoming climate neutral. Capturing and storing gigatons of CO2 annually is a crucial part of achieving this goal – but to do that, we need more open innovation. We need to collaborate and share knowledge, even if we are competitors. We might have the money, but we do not have the time to fail.

Why experiments and modelling are necessary for the safe design and operation of CO₂ transport systems

CO₂ capture, transport and storage (CCS) systems are an important part of our toolbox for mitigating climate change. However, increased R&D efforts are needed to facilitate an efficient and safe scaling up of CCS to the level needed to mitigate climate change. In his keynote speech at TCCS-12, SINTEF Chief Scientist Svend Tollak Munkejord discussed why both experiments and models are a necessary part of this effort.
