National CCU Centre
CHOCO is part of an initiative to establish a ‘National CCU centre’. Together with collaborators at UiT, we have recently been granted 4 PhD students to initiate an interdisciplinary project (called iCCU) that will be central to the National CCU centre. Our goal is to build a centre that views CCU in a holistic manner, providing knowledge on all relevant aspects, i.e. chemical and biological CO2 conversion, process optimization, economic viability, industrial needs, and environmental, societal, and ethical aspects.
Together with CHOCO, these are the UiT partners on the iCCU project:
Hans C. Eilertsen from the Norwegian College for Fishery Sciences
Øyvind Stokke from the Dept. of Philosophy
Elin M. Oftedal from the Business School
John M. Bjørndalen from the Dept. for Informatics
