iCCU PI Kathrin Hopmann is the leader of the Nordic Consortium for CO2 Conversion (NordCO2), a Nordic University Hub financed by NordForsk and the 9 participating Universities. NordCO2 has just released their first annual report, which is for the year 2018. Read it at: NordCO2_AnnualReport2018
The CCU workshop at Hamn (September 26.27th) was a great success, with 67 participants from industry, academia and the public sector.
Impressions from the meeting:
Here a beautiful picture from our visit to the ferrosilicium plant at Finnfjord to look at their CO2 recovery project. Next time Anders and Annette should exchange coates
We had a very nice CCU workshop, organized by UiT and Finnfjord AS 26-27th of September. 67 participants from different…
Here is the updated program for the national CCU meeting at Finnfjord AS, Sept. 26.27.
Looking forward to meeting you there!
We have an open PhD position, working on development of organometallic catalysts for chemical conversion of CO2 into useful and industrially relevant products. For more information see HERE.
Open position as PhD Candidate in Computer Science. Application deadline 31.07.2018:

Do you want to work with sustainable use of resources – and climate ethics – and CO2?
Here is your chance for an exciting PhD as part of the iCCU team!
The research council of Norway has published a report on interdiciplinary research in Norway. Three of the iCCU members were interviewed in the process. iCCU leader Hans Christian Eilertsen at the College of Fishery Sciences, Kathrin Hopmann at the Dept. of Chemistry was interviewed, as well as Øyvind Stokke at the Dept. for Philosophy.
You can find the report here.
The part about the university of Tromsø is in the first link, page 39.
iCCU is involved in an exciting interdiscplinary FME application on CO2 conversion, sent to the Research council of Norway in March 2018. In May we will get to know if CIRCCUS proceeds to the second round.
CO2 is not a big molecule – but there is so much you can do with it!
– You can convert CO2 to medicine in the lab.
– You can feed CO2 to algae, so they become fish-feed.
– You can detect CO2 in human breath and diagnose diseases.
– You can investigate how organisms in the ocean are affected by raising CO2 levels.
– You can study CO2 emissions in Norway and how they affect our climate goals.
Our exhibition ‘Faces of CO2‘ shows great pictures from CO2 related research at UiT.
See the exhibition at Vitensenteret in Tromsø on April 14th or online here: http://site.uit.no/iccu/faces-of-co2/
