UN General Secretary Ban Ki Moon today learned about some of Norway’s efforts to combat climate change through when he visited the exhibition stand of Technology Centre Mongstad.
- I am impressed by how much Norway has done on climate change, says Ban Ki Moon at the TCM stand in Abu Dhabi.
TCM is exhibiting at the World Future Energi Summit in Abu Dhabi for the first time, together with several other Norwegian companies like Statoil, REC and DNV.
- TCM is going to test different carbon capture technologies that are relevant for power plants and industrial plants all over the world, so it is natural for us to exhibit here at WFES in Abu Dhabi and have a dialogue with other world leaders in this field, says managing director Tore Amundsen in TCM.
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.
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.
