Cutting greenhouse gases is becoming increasingly urgent, as it becomes ever clearer how dramatic the consequences will be if we don't. CCS alone will not remove all emissions but it can take a large share. And in combination with renewable energy, energy conservation and other climate change mitigation solutions, it can make a very big difference.

The technology for CCS is mature, has been used for decades and will, in the long term, be cheaper and less energy intensive. The barriers and challenges are, in most cases, funding, juridical issues or a lack of political will, or a mix of these factors. That’s why ZERO highlights the need for an effective, permanent and sufficient framework for CCS on all levels; nationally, within EU and globally.

The longer it takes for the first large-scale facilities to be realised, the longer it will take for the next hundred to be built. To be able to reduce emissions fast enough, it is imperative to have the first ten full-scale CCS plants operating now.

The Norwegian national budget is crucial for carbon capture and storage

At a breakfast seminar organized by SINTEF, Norwegian Oil Industry Association and ZERO, the government got contingent praises for the fact that investment in carbon capture and storage (CCS) has come into a good and constructive track. Yet no one dares to open champagne bottles before we see the initiative further followed up with money in this autumn's budget. Sep 01, 2016

The road is open for full-scale carbon capture and storage in Norway

Early July Gassnova and Gassco published the conclusions of their study of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) from three Norwegian industry sources, and the conclusions are very encouraging. To clean these emissions is not only possible - it is also much cheaper than previous Norwegian CCS projects. Jul 04, 2016

COP21: International environmental NGOs urges goverments to act for CCS

Carbon capture and storage technology, which can dramatically reduce carbon pollution from industry and biomass facilities, as well as gas- and coal-fired power plants, has made great strides, but government policies are urgently needed if this piece of the climate mitigation portfolio is to be deployed widely, according to a new report released today. The ENGOS analyzis the status for CCS, gives recommendations forward globally and for their regions, including Norway. Dec 08, 2015

A case study looking at the potential for long-term CO2 storage beneath the North Sea

In this fourth article about carbon storage, we are looking at the potential for long time CO2 storage beneath the North Sea. The previous three articles have made the argument that the technology exists, is safe and has support around the globe, and in this article we aim to show where it can be done. Nov 22, 2013

Myths and facts about CO2 storage

There are a series of myths surrounding storage of CO2, and it is time to do some myth-busting and debunk some of the most long-lived myths surrounding this. One of the biggest fears concerning storage of CO2 is that this is a new technology and that there are no data gathered from long-term storage. Jul 30, 2013

Facilitating commercial scale CCS in and outside Norway – Zero Emission Conference 2014

This year’s Norwegian national budget takes us one step closer to realizing a full-scale CCS plant internationally, but there is little or no progress in realizing a full-scale plant in Norway by 2020. Instead, the government wishes to research emission sources and the foundation for carbon capture and storage in Norway. Nov 04, 2014

Veien åpen for fullskala karbonfangst og lagring i Norge

I dag la Gassnova og Gassco frem konklusjonene fra sine studier av karbonfangst og lagring (CCS) fra tre norske industrikilder, og konklusjonene er svært oppløftende. Å rense disse utslippene er ikke bare mulig – det er også mye billigere enn tidligere norske CCS-prosjekter. Jul 04, 2016
