Walk round the world’s largest carbon capture test facility

ELN Reporter Priyanka Shrestha visits the Technology Centre Mongstad on the outskirts of Norway. Can it be the future for CCS research and why are the Norwegian public so happy to pay for it?

World’s largest CCS test centre keeps working with Alstom

The world’s largest carbon capture test facility – the CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) in Norway – has agreed to continue working with power generation and transmission company Alstom. They will carry on testing Alstom’s Chilled Ammonia carbon capture process until Autumn 2014 – an extra year. Despite recently scrapping the adjoining full-scale carbon capture […]

Norway cans full-scale carbon capture project

Norway has canned funding for a full-scale carbon capture project. The Norwegian Government said the CO2 development at Mongstad will be “discontinued” and replaced by a Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) programme. Norway’s Technology Centre Mongstad (pictured) which is one of the world’s largest and most advanced, will be continued and strengthened. Minister of Petroleum and Energy […]

Blog: With a little help from EUR friends

430,000 metres of cables.  A mass of dials and instruments. Steel pipes towering to the size of a block of flats. In front of me stood the world’s largest CCS test centre. Located on Norway’s west coast near Bergen, the second largest city in Norway, it was over an hour’s drive to get to Mongstad […]

Norway’s CCS test facility aims for cost-effective development

Norway is leading the way in carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology development as it is home to the largest CCS testing facility in the world. That’s the view of the Managing Director at the Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) (pictured) located north of Bergen, who claims the facility will play a crucial role in testing […]

Carbon capture network links world’s researchers for first time

Eight of the world’s largest test centres for carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology are forming the first ever international CCS network, it was announced today. The test centres are joining forces to try and catapult the technology so it can be brought to commercial markets. CCS traps the carbon from power stations’ greenhouse gas […]
