and transport of tangle. It now just needs to start. CO2 capture technology in Norway
is today experiencing a breakthrough
A small Norwegian company, Sargas, has developed new technology for
CO2 capture, and is now ready for an international launch of the technology
in Hammerfest on the Barents Sea coast. Recent test results from a coal
fired test plant outside Stockholm in Sweden were remarkable, with the
hope to capture between 90% and 95% of the CO2. The effect is apparently
even better with gas-fired power plants. The company Hammerfest Energy,
which runs the gas-fired power station at the Snøhvit LNG-plant, is one of
Sargas’ two partners in Norway. Hammerfest Energy is ready to make use
of the technology as soon as the testing is finished. A pipeline that will
transport CO2 from the power station at Melkøya to deposit it at the Snøhvit
gas field is already in place.46 46 Barents Observer. Available on: <www.barentsobserver.com/co2-capturetechnology-breakthrough.4477875-16178.html> - 24.04....
