DOE-Funded Carbon Capture Technology Moves Forward to Large-Scale Testing
October 12, 2016
The Department of Energy (DOE) today announced that a DOE-funded project on second-generation carbon dioxide (CO2) solvent technology will begin testing at the Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) in western Norway. The DOE and the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy have a bilateral Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) covering fossil energy-related research to leverage each countries’ investments in carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).
