"The work on TCM has been one of Gassnova's most important tasks. But what happens there has an impact reaching far beyond Norway's borders. The answers provided by the technology centre will benefit the entire world. And it bears repeating: The job is not done when Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg opens TCM. This is really when it starts," says CEO of Gassnova Bjørn-Erik Haugan.
Several events will take place in Bergen in connection with opening TCM.
On 8 May, Gassnova, together with the IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D programme and the Global CCS Institute, will organise a technical seminar where about 220 people will participate from Norway and abroad. The title of the seminar is: The Status of Carbon Capture Technologies. Claude Mandil, Chairman of the IAP for the Global CCS Institute will be the moderator for this event.
