Technology companies carry out testing of their carbon capture technologies at TCM and the integration of technology verification will expedite the process of getting new solutions to the market. TCM and DNV GL will offer services to both companies using TCM’s facility and external actors in the carbon capture technology sphere.
“It is vital for us to ensure that carbon capture technology is sufficiently advanced to be used at our facility. Verification and advisory services are a natural progression of the quality assurance measures which we have in place for our collaboration partners that are using TCM’s facility,” said CEO of TCM, Ernst Axelsen.
“We have been working with both CCS and verification of new technologies for the energy sector for a long time. Combining these two capabilities together with TCM is a natural extension of our expertise,” added Liv Hovem, CEO DNV GL – Oil & Gas.
DNV GL’s Energy Transition Outlook forecasts that the planet is set to warm beyond the goals set in the Paris Agreement, even though the global energy supply is rapidly decarbonizing. According to many reports, CCS, along with energy efficiency and more renewables, must all be stepped up to prevent the planet from warming to unsustainable levels.
