Internasjonalt samarbeid baner vei for CO2-lagring

Verdens ledende forskere innenfor strømning i porøse medier har dannet sitt eget nettverk. En konferanse i Bergen denne uken viste at dette er måten til å maksimere utbyttet av forskning og utvikling.
 

Global deployment of CO2 storage is possible, but better understanding of how CO2 will flow inside a storage site is necessary. This challenge is addressed by the NUPUS network where international experts within flow in porous media meet.

NUPUS stands for Non-linearities and Upscaling in PoroUS Media. It is an international and interdisciplinary cooperation of universities and scientists with the aim of tackling current problems in the research area of porous media flow. The CLIMIT programme is one of the sponsors.

The network met at a conference at Solstrand hotel at Os outside Bergen this week. More than 100 experts participated and showed that there is an incredible R&D activity around the world seeking to answer how we can model CO2 flow. They shared their results at the conference and the new knowledge presented is absolutely necessary for building models that we need before we can store CO2 large scale around the world.

The conference was arranged by the University of Bergen and UNI Research. Dr. Sarah Gasda from UNI Research says the international cooperation is very valuable.

- By joining forces with other countries we are able to accelerate the learning, Gasda says.

The NUPUS network has a strong focus on education. There are several PhD and Post Doc candidates in the network.

- The conference in Bergen is a very good arena for young scientists. They learn a lot from presenting their results and building network with other young experts, Sarah Gasda points out.

NUPUS is a very good example of top international collaboration where researchers join forces to solve challenges related to CO2 storage.
