The main objective of the BIGCCS Centre is to contribute to the ambitious targets in the Climate agreement in the Norwegian parliament in February 2008. Hence, provide additionality through promoting CCS.

The BIGCCS Centre will enable sustainable power generation from fossil fuels based on cost-effective CO2 capture, and safe transport and underground storage of CO2.

This will be achieved by building expertise and closing critical knowledge gaps of the CO2 chain, and developing novel technologies in an extensive collaborative research effort.
