The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has as its mission “Knowledge for a better world” and creates solutions that can change our daily lives. Norway’s largest and most innovative centre of its kind, NTNU has an annual budget of 1 billion Euros spread across its 9 faculties and 55 departments. It currently has around 42,000 students, of which half study technology and the natural sciences, and awards around 400 doctoral degrees annually.

The Environmental Engineering and Reactor Technology (EEART) group in the Department of Chemical Engineering currently has 10 full professors, 5 researchers, 5 postdocs and 15 PhD positions. It has more than 20 years of experience with CO2 capture from natural gas and flue gases and is highly regarded internationally in the area of CO2 capture. The group has strong expertise and long experience in solvent development and characterisation. Detailed studies related to solvent degradation have been part of its activities for many years and the research group has had an active role in many large national (e.g. BIGCCS, CCERT, GREEN SEA and SOLVit) and EU (e.g. iCap, HiPerCap, OCTAVIUS, CESAR, CASTOR and ALIGN-CCUS) projects.  The absorption laboratories at NTNU are part of ECCSEL (www.eccsel.org).
