Expansion of CCS Test Network secured


CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) today announces the expansion of the International Test Centre Network, which allows carbon capture test facilities around the world to share knowledge to accelerate the commercialisation of Carbon Capture and Storage technologies.

The addition of the PACT Facilities to the Network – which currently spans Norway, Canada, Germany and the United States – will extend its reach and bring UK research in carbon capture onto the international stage.

The Pilot-scale Advanced Capture Technology (PACT) Facilities form part of the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) and is jointly funded by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

The purpose of PACT is to support and catalyse industrial and academic R&D, by providing open-access testing facilities.  This helps accelerate the development and commercialisation of technologies for carbon capture and clean power generation. The PACT facilities bring together a comprehensive range of integrated pilot-scale and accompanying specialist research and analytical facilities, supported by leading academic expertise.
