Ready to realize full chain carbon capture and storage
In a Government White Paper to the Norwegian parliament submitted today, the Government proposes to launch a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in Norway.
The government's recommendation
- We are very pleased with the government's recommendation. The government proposes to first realize the capture of CO2 (CCS) at Norcem's cement factory in Brevik. The Government also plans to support the capture of CO2 at Fortum Oslo Varme's waste management facility in Oslo, provided that this project first obtains sufficient self-financing and financing from the EU or other sources.
The Government's decision is based on extensive work carried out by Gassnova and the industrial partners we have collaborated with over the past five years. The decision is also inspiring for all our skilled and committed employees, who have worked to help us now realize full-scale CCS in Norway, says Trude Sundset, Gassnovas CEO.
