Longyearbyen CO2 Project.
The aim of the Longyearbyen CO2 Lab is to take advantage of the community’s closed energy system, powered by Norway’s only coal fuelled power plant. This small Arctic community could demonstrate the full CCS value chain, becoming a global show case; a community that takes care of its CO2 from the source to the solution.
