On 9 and 10 November, the Norwegian CCS Research Centre Consortium gathered in Trondheim for its annual Consortium Days event.
If we are to design and operate CO2 capture, transport and storage (CCS) systems efficiently and safely, we need to know more about CO2’s choked flow – that is, its maximum flow rate through valves, holes or other restrictions. This has been the subject of a new paper: Experiments and modelling of choked flow of CO2 in orifices and nozzles.
Anne-Sophie Sur is a PhD candidate in Task 7 of the Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS). This summer, she attended the 11th European Conference on Solid Mechanics in Galway, Ireland. Afterwards, she wrote a travel letter about her experience at the conference and explaining her work to develop a model to predict fractures in pipelines transporting CO2.
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.
Last year, NCCS PhD candidate joined the International Ocean Discovery Programme’s Expedition 396 to recover basalts. Now, he’s starting to characterise these basalts at the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI).
Ever wondered why too much CO2 in the atmosphere is a bad thing, and what CCS can do about it? Ingrid Snustad, research scientist at SINTEF Energy Research and the Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS), is here to explain.
