How to get access to test at TCM
The prerequisite for a collaboration in a commercial context, is that the technology must be sufficiently mature (technology readiness level approx. 7-8 based on NASA’s definition). TCM holds an emission permit from the Norwegian Environmental authorities. Another prerequisite is to verify that the technology can perform within the limits set in the emission permit. After testing at TCM, the technology should in principle be ready for use in full-scale industrial plants.
Our business development department assists technology companies with information and advice about testing at our facility. We also take part in dialogue with governmental funding entities (ex. NETL, BEIS) and developers of carbon capture projects.
Since 2012, Aker Solutions, Alstom, Cansolv Technologies, Carbon Clean Solutions, ION Clean Energy and Fluor Corporation have all tested their technologies at TCM. In addition, we have provided advisory services to the Norwegian full-scale project, OGCI CI Clean Gas Project and Haifeng CO2 pilot plant.
