Working group on Crosscutting Research Program

Crosscutting research is really about any research topic that relates to more than one of the other topics defined above. It may cover:

  • Industrial capture
  • Design, engineering and fabrication of modular and small scale capture units
  • Membrane developments
  • Combustion, follow up of webinar on CLC, but also topics like turbines and supercritical CO2
  • Carbon Capture Simulation Initiative (CCSI) modeling and integrated assessments
  • CO2 transport (materials, impurities, flow, corrosion, upset conditions)

Contact persons are:

USA:          Regis Conrad, Regis.Conradi@hq.doe.gov

Norway:     Åse Slagtern, asl@rcn.no

                   Aage Stangeland, ast@rcn.no

There are no specific activities in this working group at present. Possible topics for cooperation include:

  • Aspects of advanced combustion topics. A webinar between researchers from NETL and SINTEF was held 20 September 2016.
  • Chemical looping Combustion (CLC). A webinar was held in April between NETL, SINTEF, and IFE on CLC in which both sides presented their work. The event was well received from both sides and may lead to closer contact.
  • Design, engineering and fabrication of modular and small scale capture units
  • Membrane developments
  • Environmental issues related to solvent technology. Some cooperation is taking place in Large scale testing work group
  • Advanced simulation tools, ( Carbon Capture Simulation Initiative (CCSI) and similar
  •  CO2 transport (materials, impurities, flow, corrosion)
