Decarbonizing Industry Using Carbon Capture: Norway Full Chain CCS
Industrial sectors such as steel, cement, iron, and chemicals production are responsible for over 20 percent of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. To be on track to meet greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets established as part of the Paris Climate Accord, all sectors must find solutions to rapidly decarbonize, and carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology is the only path for energy-intensive industries.
This webinar will explore how one country, Norway, is working to realize a large-scale Full Chain CCS project, where it is planning to apply carbon capture technology to several industrial facilities. This unique project explores capturing CO2 from three different industrial facilities - an ammonia production plant, a waste-to-energy plant, and a cement production facility. Captured CO2 will be then transported by ship to a permanent off-shore storage site operated as part of a collaboration between Statoil, Total, and Shell. When operational, Norway Full Chain CCS will capture and permanently store up to 1.5 million tons of CO2 per year.
During this webinar, Michael Carpenter, Senior Adviser at Gassnova, will provide an overview of the Norway Full Chain CCS, and discuss the value that Norway aims to derive from it. The key stakeholders working on this exciting project, and how they cooperate, will be also discussed. Gassnova is a Norwegian state enterprise focusing on CCS technology, which manages the Norway Full Chain CCS project.
