A workshop on "Novel Business Models for CCS and CCUS", took place in Washington DC on August 30, in connection with the US-Norway annual bilateral meeting August 28 and 29. This link provide access to the agenda, the presentations and summaries.
16 November 2016: The CO2 Storage Data Consortium (CSDC) launched
The CO2 Storage Data Consortium (CSDC) – was launched 16 November 2016 at the GHGT13 conference in Lausanne, Switzerland. The CSDC is a new international network aimed at promoting data sharing from pioneering CO2 storage projects in order to accelerate innovation and deployment of CCS. The aim of the meeting was to explain the objectives and to gain feedback from potential participants. The CO2 Storage Data Consortium (CSDC) Secretariat can be contacted at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Researchers from NETL and SINTEF exchanged information on activities and views on aspects of combustion in an effort to look for possible co-operation in the Crosscutting part under the bilateral umbrella. John Rockey presented the Office of Fossil Energy’s program on Advanced Combustion Systems, Nathan Weiland gave a review of NETL’s supercritical CO2 (sCO ) techno-economic analyses, Mario Ditaranto presented some of SINTEF’s work on oxy-fuel combustion and Petter Nekså gave an overview of work SINTEF is doing on tools and applications for CO2 power cycle development.
An international workshop on offshore geologic storage of CO2 was hosted by the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) at the University of Texas at Austin The workshop was attended by approximately 50 persons from around the world, with emphasis on offshore geologic storage of CO2 in developing countries. The presentations from the workshop are available here and the workshop report here.
A webinar between NETL laboratories and Norwegian research institutions were held April 14, 2016. on Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC). The goal of the meeting was to see if there are possibilities for cooperation. Douglas Straub, NETL, presented their activities on CLC, and from the Norwegian side summaries of activies were given by Julien Meyer, IFE and Yngve Larring, Sintef. Shahriar Amini, NTNU, could not be present by some activities were later shared with US delegates.
Oslo Airport, Gardermoen:
From lunch on 26 January to the afternoon of 27 January, 55 invited participants emery to discuss and exchange knowledge on development of new and/or future CO2 capture technologies. The workshop was organized by the CLIMIT programme.
The purpose of the meeting was to obtain an overview of the status within new technology for CO2 capture, inspire international cooperation in this area, as well as to provide good points to the CLIMIT secretariat for the preparation of a new programme plan. The programme consisted of a mix of presentations, panel debates and group work. The participants came from research institutes, academia, industry and the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy. The industry was represented by suppliers Aker Solutions and GE, as well as the user side with Norcem, Yara, Hydro Aluminium, Klemetsrud waste recovery and Shell. Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany and the US were also represented, along with the many participants from Norwegian organisations.
This workshop took place on Sunday 6th September 2015 and was organised as a side-event to the plenary meeting of the ISO technical committee for CCS (TC265) that was held near Oslo from the 7th to 11th September. The workshop was organised and hosted by the USA-Norway CCUS MVA group, which is organised under the Memorandum of Understanding between the US Department of Energy and the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum.
