Article Type: Summarized
The European Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage Laboratory Infrastructure (ECCSEL) initiative will receive €81 million financial support to set up a research infrastructure.
Norway, Germany, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Hungary, Poland, Croatia and Denmark are all involved, with around a third of the funding going to Norway.
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and independent research organization SINTEF are coordinating the international effort, which will see 15 joint laboratories built across nine countries. Norway will host five of the 15 laboratories at a hub in Trondheim.
Two new labs in Norway, which will cost around €23 million in total, will focus on scrubbing and low temperature separation technologies for removing CO2 from power station flue gases. Other labs will investigate storage technology, improving combustion and the materials and processes used.
