Vil drive CO2-fangst med oxyfuel

CLIMIT: Ettermontering av anlegg for CO2-fangst betyr store kostnader for et kraftverk i drift. Nebb har utviklet et konsept der kraft og varme produseres av et eget oxyfuel-anlegg. Dermed blir eksosrøret eneste koblingspunkt og nedetiden for kraftverket kort. Les mer

35 millioner til Nordisk kompetansesenter for realisering av karbonfangst og lagring

norden.no: Det nordiske Toppforskningsinitiativet utlyser NOK 35 millioner til etablering og drift av et nytt nordisk brukerdrevet kompetansesenter for realisering av karbonfangst og lagring. Målet med senteret er å fremme nyskaping, felles tiltak og prosesser i de nordiske landene og å øke brukerdreven innovasjon innen karbonfangst og lagring. Senteret, som Nordisk InnovationsCenter har ansvar for, skal drives over en periode på fire år, i samarbeid mellom private og offentlige aktører. Søknadsfristen er 1. mars 2011. Les mer
