Norwegian Government to build carbon capture facility capable of capturing over 1 million tonnes of CO2 per year
The Norwegian Government will build a carbon capture and storage facility capable of capturing over 1 million tonnes of CO2 per year, making it potentially the world's largest to date.

The new facility will be built at a natural gas power plant in Norway. There have been four companies selected in the process, one of which is HTC PurEnergy who has developed its carbon capture technology at the University of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The program will involve the construction of a carbon capture facility capable of capturing one million tonnes of CO2 per year, as well as installing pipelines for transport and storage of CO2 in geological formations.

The Asia-Pacific rights to the HTC technology are held by Brisbane-based EESTech Inc.

The HTC Purenergy CCS is the world's first pre engineered, modular built CO2 capture system, which can also be retrofitted onto existing power plants. When integrated with EESTech's Hybrid Coal Gas Turbine, which utilises waste coal, methane or biomass to produce the energy required by the HTC Purenergy CCS, the cost of capture is significantly reduced.
