Results from last year’s CESAR-1 campaign
The 11th Trondheim Conference on CO2 Capture, Transport and Storage takes place on Tuesday 22 – Wednesday 23 June. TCCS-11 goes virtual. Since the start in 2003, the Conference has grown from a meeting for a select few, to be an important meeting for 350 – 400 CCS experts from all over the world. Erna Solberg, prime minister of Norway, will open this years conference.
CESAR-1 is the name of of a research based solvent used by the aim of capturing CO2 at the lowest possible cost. The title for TCM’s presentation on the conference is “Results from CESAR-1 testing with combined heat and power (CHP) flue gas at the CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad”. Scott Hume from EPRI – University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland will give the presentation. EPRI have verified the results from the campaign.
It was the owners of TCM; Gassnova (on behalf of the Norwegian state) and the industrial partners Shell, Total and Equinor, who together initiated the implementation of the test with CESAR 1. The reason is that the International Energy Agency, through its Greenhouse Gas R & D Program (IEAGHG), has requested a comprehensive assessment of new technologies for CO2 capture in the energy sector, and an evaluation of their potential to reduce costs associated with the operation of full-scale facilities.
