JAKARTA ( – The globally leading scientific Trondheim CCS Conference (TCCS-10) will gather 500 international carbon capture and storage (CCS) researchers, industry representatives and policymakers in Trondheim, Norway on 17-19 June 2019.  TCCS-10 is hosted jointly by SINTEF and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and organized by the Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS).

Leading keynote speakers will present and discuss the latest CCS research to accelerate CCS technology. The city of Trondheim will also be hosting a Mission Innovation CCS workshop on 20 June 2019 and The Big Challenge Science festival featuring countless popular science lectures, cultural events and concerts.

CCS is a field dedicated to capturing, transporting and storing CO2. CCS technology prevents CO2 emissions from energy-intensive industries such as power, oil and gas, steel, and cement. CCS can provide for climate positive solutions (Bio CCS) and enable massive production of clean hydrogen from natural gas.

The UN climate panel launched a report in October 2018, Global Warming of 1.5 ºC, showing that CCS is a technology that is critical to achieving the Paris Agreement.

“Achieving the climate goals is a global responsibility,” says Dr. Nils Røkke, EVP Sustainability SINTEF. “TCCS-10, and the Mission Innovation CCS workshop, is going to be an important meeting place to inspire and showcase the latest research, share knowledge internationally and help bring CCS technology closer to deployment.”

“To accelerate CCS implementation, we all need to work hard together. To do that, we have to come together at important conferences. The Trondheim CCS Conference in June 2019 is going to be one of those seminal moments for CCS, and we all really must get along there because we are not going to beat climate change unless we have CCS,” says Brad Page, CEO Global CCS Institute.

“Leading experts from industry, research, and both public and private sector will participate in these vitally important conversations. The conference will inspire through high-level keynotes and create change through in-depth conversations, giving participants insight into the latest research and trends to realize the new CCS opportunities,” says Mona Mølnvik, head of FME Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS).
