EDDiCCUT was a 4 year research project aiming to systematically assess the technical, economic and environmental performance of novel CO2 capture and utilization technologies. The project was led by the Industrial Ecology Programme at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in collaboration with the Copernicus institute at Utrecht University and Telā€Tek in Porsgrunn. The project has been supported by Gassnova and industrial partners.
