CO2stCap - Reducing the Cost of Carbon Capture in Process Industry
Report, 2019

The CO2stCap-Project is a Norwegian-Swedish research initiative that was initiated in Year 2015 to reduce the cost of carbon capture in the process industry by developing concepts for the partial capture of emissions. The project is based on the premises that carbon capture and storage (CCS) is commercially available and can be implemented on a large scale, and that CCS is a required part of the solution to reduce global emissions of CO2 in line with the 1.5°C target. However, the substantial efforts made to develop low-carbon technologies have resulted in little implementation, as the value assigned to mitigating CO2 emissions is still too low relative to the risk associated with the considerable investment required, both from the industry and societal perspectives. The CO2stCap-Project is designed to enable the goals related to the reduction of CO2 emissions that have been established at the national, regional and global levels.
