On the 20.th of january the world’s first carbon capture pilot for smelters will be officially opened. The carbon capture pilot is ground-breaking and crucial for achieving the global targets for reducing CO2-emissions.

However, if we are to reach the climate targets globally, one large-scale carbon capture plant must be opened every week. How are we going to achieve that?

Participants: The Federation of Norwegian Industries, Zero, Gassnova, A.SPIRE, The Research Council, Industri Energi, Northern Lights, Mo Industrial Park and the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.

The pilot test is part of a larger R&D project, CO2 HUB Nord, which runs over two years and is funded by Climit Demo. The main goal of the project is to verify the technology on real industrial gases from smelters and other process industries, in order to prepare a full-scale plant for industrial carbon capture.

The carbon capture pilot testing is a collaboration between Elkem ASA, Mo Industripark AS, SMA Mineral , SINTEF, Alcoa, CELSA GROUP, Ferroglobe PLC, Norcem AS, NorFraKalk AS, Arctic Cluster Team – ACT and Aker Carbon Capture.
