SINTEF ER - SINTEF Energy Research


SINTEF Energy Research is part of the SINTEF group, which is the largest independent research organisation in Scandinavia (2100 employees).

SINTEF ER (210 employees) has a wide expertise within the field of energy research and has been involved in projects related to CCS technologies since 2001. SINTEF ER will (if funded) coordinate and manage the Horizon 2020 project CEMCAP, building on previous experiences from EU FP6 and FP7 projects (ENCAP, Dynamis, DECARBit, ECCO, IMPACTS). SINTEF ER is also the host of the BIGCCS international CCS centre, which, among other topics, cover research on CO2 capture from industry and power generation. SINTEF ER also has decades of experience related to low temperature gas processing (LNG, liquid H2, LN2, and liquid CO2), which is highly relevant for the membrane-assisted CO2 liquefaction technology to be investigated in WP4.2. SINTEF ER also has a long experience in benchmarking (in CEMCAP referred to as comparative techno-economic analysis) of power processes for CO2 capture, both in the now concluded BIGCO2 project and through the participation in the European Benchmarking Task Force (collaboration between FP7 projects DECARBit, CAESAR and CESAR).

SINTEF ER has a leading role in ZEP and EERA JP CCS and will contribute to the coordination with these and other CCS related organizations.
