‘Negative CO2 Emissions in the Nordic Energy System’ – Final Dissemination Event: Summarizing the project

New date: 11 June, 15:00 – 16:15

This webinar is organised by the Nordic Energy Research (NER) Flagship Project ‘Negative CO2 Emissions in the Nordic Energy System’ and project partner Bellona. The webinar agenda is to summarize project results and achievements. The project is coordinated by the Chalmers Technical University.   

This flagship project started in 2016 and concludes its research and development program in 2020. Its focus has been on Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR), leading to negative emissions, using bio-CCS. This entails use of biomass feedstock in energy conversion processes and subsequently capturing and storing the CO2 in the process flue gas. It is one of the most cost effective and efficient methods of achieving CDR and negative emissions.

A promising bio-CCS technology developed and tested in this flagship project is Chemical-Looping Combustion (CLC). Whereas other CO2 capture technologies can have high energy penalties and large incremental investment costs, CLC promises to be more energy-efficient and cost-effective. This flagship research project aimed at making bio-CLC ready for the construction of a demonstration-scale facility. But the project has also tried to answer: How can recently publicised roadmaps for decarbonisation in the Nordic countries be achieved in an optimal way given recent policy developments in the Nordics and in Europe?

The project leadership will present a compact summary of its main results on behalf of its partners, Chalmers University of Technology, SINTEF, VTT, Åbo Akademi and The Bellona Foundation. The targeted audience is technology specialists and policy experts on GHG emissions reductions solutions.

Replay of the recorded webinar will be made available. Please forward this invitation to your colleagues you would also like to participate. They will need to register their own email and contact data.
