The test center employs two near industrial scale CO2 capture plants that can each be tested against two separate, live flue gas sources. The center is a joint venture between the Norwegian Government and international energy companies Statoil, Shell and Sasol. 4000 on line measuring points provide data to verify post combustion CO2 capture performance in a wide operational window. Test results provide enhanced confidence in CCUS technology and will greatly help drive these technologies down the cost curve.
