rolincap 2019 - Endagsseminarie om CCS Göteborg 22 maj

Welcome to a day with focus on CCS

Global warming is among the grand challenges for the 21st century. International scientific organizations mention that at least 100 commercial-scale carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) projects must be operational within the next few years in order to ensure global warming stays below 2 °C, which is the limit in order to avoid catastrophic effects to the environment. There are currently less than 17 CCS operational projects worldwide. The adoption of CO₂ capture technologies is much slower than desired due to a lack of financial incentive. The way forward is therefore to significantly reduce the costs of CO₂ capture technologies in order to be realistic about meeting wide deployment targets within the next 15 to 30 years.

Where does the technical development of CCS stand today? What lays ahead of us? As in many new technical fields the potential for improvement is high and the development curve steep. With the most advanced tools we have today, the possibilities are there.

  • During this workshop we dive deep into the technical development of phase changing solvents and rotating packed columns within the ROLINCAP project.
  • From the CO2 Technology Center Mongstad we hear about the real live tests of upcoming CCS solvents.
  • GE Aviation gives a presentation of the TURBO-REFLEX concept for increased flexibility in energy production, another way to reduce CO₂ emissions.
  • Equinor provides us with a concept and service, available in the near future, for permanent storage of CO₂ in the North sea-bed.
