ECCSEL follow-up meeting at IFE 2021

TRANSPORT

An ECCSEL follow-up meeting took place 12th November 2021 at the Institute of Energy Technology (IFE) in Kjeller. The ECCSEL Operations Centre also visited the two existing ECCSEL IFE facilities, the Geochemistry laboratory, and the FALCON flow assurance loop.

IFE’s lab for studying corrosivity of pipeline materials at different operating conditions, emphasizing the effects of impurities in the CO2, was also visited.

The FALCON flow loop has been significantly upgraded over the last 2-3 years and is in a strengthened position to serve the CCS industries’ need for testing new technologies and operating procedures related to pipeline transport, ship on/off-loading, and injection into storage reservoirs.

The upgrades include better instrumentation, possibility to operate at lower temperatures (-25oC) and equipment that simplifies the operation of the flow loop.

FALCON: New online sampling and analysis instruments - a gas chromatograph and a laser spectrometer - to study effects of impurities on transport issues

FALCON’s test section inclined to around 45 degrees.

ECCSEL ERIC Whitepaper

Other
The ECCSEL Whitepaper has been launched, where attention is drawn to CCUS as a solution to decarbonisation of energy-intensive industry. It is argued that by participating in the European Research Infrastructure for CCUS technologies – ECCSEL ERIC – countries in Europe can support, de-risk, and reduce investments costs in the costly demonstration and prototyping phase of implementing CCUS technologies.
