NCCS facilitated the communication with very up-to-date information on the development of the new Norwegian storage site and the industrial sources of CO2, representing state-of-the-art work-in-progress information by a leading CCS country.

Four days including a fieldtrip and laboratory tour

The IEAGHG CCS Summer School lasted for 4 days, consisting of lectures and a field trip to the CO2 Laboratory at Tiller and a tour of SINTEF’s lab facilities at NTNU on Wednesday.

The awards for the two Most Outstanding Students were awarded to Corey Myers (Waseda University) and Pooya Hoseinpoori (Imperial College). (This was by far the most difficult award to pick winners for as they were also good!)
