Technology Centre Mongstad is the world’s largest facility for testing and improving CO2 capture technologies, a vital part of the CCS value chain. At TCM we will focus on testing and improving CO2 capture technology and take technology development one step further.
TCM at the forefront of innovation...
The knowledge gained through demonstration and testing will prepare the ground for CO2 capture initiatives to combat climate change globally. It will not only be one of the first large scale demonstration plants, but also the first of its kind to test two different types of capture technologies from two different sources of CO2, side-by-side.
The main ambitions of the Technology Centre are to:
• Test, verify and demonstrate CO2 capture technology owned and marketed by vendors
• Reduce cost, technical, environmental and financial risks
• Encourage the development of the market for carbon capture technology
• Aim at international development
The realisation of TCM depends on close cooperation between the owners and technology suppliers. The success criteria include increased competition among the suppliers, strengthening the development of a market.
VISION: Contribute to combat climate change through technology
MISSION: TCM will test and improve technologies for CO2 Capture
VALUES: Innovative - Bold - Competent
