Carbon capture deal ‘key’ to unlocking CCS market


An agreement has been signed by Norwegian clean energy company Aker Carbon Capture (Aker) and carbon removal specialist Storegga to collaborate on future carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects, forming a partnership that could play a key role in unlocking the CCS market.

Aker has been capitalising on the increased demand for carbon capture solutions by taking part in projects such as the Keadby 3 Carbon Capture Power Station announced last week and bp’s Net Zero Teesside project.
