Aker & SINTEF to Develop CCUS Technology

The agreement represents a strategic interaction on a non-exclusive basis, to speed up and make available CCUS more widespread.

Aker Carbon Capture and SINTEF have signed partnership agreement to further develop carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) technology to reduce CO2 emissions from industry and energy solutions.

This is a vital part of the green transition in Norway.

“Aker and SINTEF have collaborated for more than 25 years, and have been pioneers of CCUS, which represents a vital solution for our ability to reach net-zero emissions. With this agreement, we accelerate the transfer of science and research to innovation in the market,” said Alexandra Bech Gjørv, CEO of SINTEF.

“Establishing the right partnerships is a critical component of our strategy and we are pleased to further strengthen our collaboration with SINTEF to develop new innovative solutions to curb CO2 emissions,” said Valborg Lundegaard, CEO of Aker Carbon Capture.

“CCUS is an indispensable tool for achieving global climate goals. As a technology, it has risen from nice to have to need to have,” said Nils Røkke, EVP Sustainability at SINTEF.

“A partnership with SINTEF and access to their significant testing infrastructure and knowledge of CCUS and enabling technologies, will not only allow Aker Carbon Capture to continue to improve our existing technology portfolio but also enable us to collaboratively identify the next generation CCUS technology and bring it to the market. Through a strategic collaboration we can challenge each other to accelerate the development of new solutions,” said Jim Stian Olsen, Chief Technology Officer of Aker Carbon Capture.

“To meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and Norwegian climate ambitions, we need to continue the joint efforts to cut costs, reduce risk, and scale up CCS technologies. Research, development, and innovation efforts done in cooperation between universities, research institutions, and industry actors like Aker Carbon Capture are essential,” said NCCS Director Mona Mølnvik.

The agreement represents a strategic interaction on a non-exclusive basis, to speed up and make available CCUS more widespread.

There will be actions to establish more CCUS projects, particularly in the field of CO2 capture.

Through the collaboration, the parties will explore opportunities to develop new capture technologies, share knowledge, and collaborate more closely to generate and follow up on new ideas.

Through the Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS), SINTEF and its partners have contributed both knowledge and research to Langskip.
