World’s largest and most important research conference for CCS technology

On Monday, TCM presented the comprehensive effort that has taken place at the amine facility at TCM in order to establish a brand new industry standard for amine-based carbon capture, the so-called MEA campaign.

TCM has also taken the initiative to establish a global knowledge-sharing network for major carbon capture test centres. In addition to TCM, the US-based NCCC/Southern Company, Canadian SaskPower, Italian ENEL and German E.ON have joined the network, and efforts are under way to recruit additional participants. The third network meeting was held in Austin over the weekend. International collaboration and exchange of information will ensure expedited progress within the CCS field.

The conference (which is currently under way in Austin, Texas, from 5-9 October) is an important meeting place for a global CCS community. TCM will hold meetings with a handful of suppliers of carbon capture technology, where the goal is to recruit new users for TCM.

The Norwegian State, represented by Gassnova, is the majority owner in Technology Centre Mongstad, with an ownership interest of 75 per cent.
