Bikes, gravel and CO2 flow out of equilibrium

Bikes, gravel and CO2 flow out of equilibrium
In NCCS (NCCS Task 7) we work to improve and expand our knowledge on the design and operation of safe and efficient CO2-transport systems. Part of this is to understand CO2 flows that are out of equilibrium. … Read more

Why quantitative monitoring is important for
cost-efficient CO2 storage

Carbon storage at Sleipner
Implementation of large-scale CCS is currently mainly limited by cost aspects. The storage and monitoring are parts of the value chain where significant cost reduction is desired. … Read more

Tailor-made molecules for increased CO2-EOR efficiency

Injection of CO2 into oil fields can increase the amount of oil produced (CO2-EOR), while at the same time storing large amounts of CO2. This is the only currently available method to significantly reduce the overall cost of a CCS chain. CO2-EOR has been in use for several decades at onshore fields in North America.

Fruitful research visit to MIT related to low emission H2 production

SINTEF Industry recently published a study on the interaction between CO2 molecules and the surface of BaZrO3 – a membrane material utilized in electrochemical membrane reactors for hydrogen production from natural gas in NCCS Task 3: Low Emission H2 production. The Protonic Membrane Reformer (PMR) is a pre-combustion CCS technology being developed by NCCS partner Coorstek Membrane Sciences, and will … Read more

Fiscal metering – the need for traceability

Research scientist Han Deng and Senior research scientist Sigurd W. Løvseth of SINTEF with Technical director Edward Jukes of KROHNE Ltd (middle) in front of the calibration facility. During calibration, tonnes of water are filled in the tank in the background. After a given time-period, the tank is weighed and the result compared with the reading of the flow meter under test.
For future large-scale CCS, traceable flow measurements are required. For instance, currently, the only pan-EEA/EU incentive for CCS is the emission trading scheme (ETS), where purchase of CO2 certificates under certain conditions are not needed for CO2 that is permanently stored in a geological reservoir. One of the conditions are … Read more
