Norwegian officials have unveiled the world's largest technology centre for carbon-capture and storage (CCS), according to a statement from the centre.

The centre will test new CCS technologies on the 280MW Mongstad combined heat and power plant at the Statoil Mongstad Refinery located along the west coast of Norway. The technology will capture flue gases in a test that will last up to 18 months.

A spokesman confirmed the technology was capable of capturing up to 100,000 tonnes of emissions per year.

Ownership of the technology centre is split between Gassnova (75.12%), Statoil (20%), Norske Shell (2.44%) and Sasol (2.44%).
