Environmental Gas Management Research Infrastructure

A joint effort between the NTNU and SINTEF, ENGAS is specialised in the cleaning up of CO2, NOx, SOx and other greenhouse gases, and in removing them from oil and gas production processes. The ENGAS laboratories are designed to solve problems related to reducing emissions in the whole technology chain from energy source to end-user.

EU Research Infrastructure

Over the last 30 years NTNU and its technology transfer partner SINTEF have jointly developed an 8,000 square metre, 38 million € research facility.

600 people work at the ENGAS Research Infrastructure. Research areas are:

  • How to clean up CO2, NOx, SOx and other greenhouse gases
  • How to remove them from the oil and gas production processes
  • The use of oil and gas in industry, buildings and transport

A secondary thrust has been to cross-link this research with the development of clean new renewable energy technologies.

Access to researchers

This ENGAS Research Infrastructure offers access to researchers through an integrated complex of 14 outstanding laboratories for focused and trans-boundary research within the field of environmental gas management. These laboratories are designed to solve problems related to reducing emissions in the whole technology chain from energy source to end-user. The laboratories have been utilised successfully in bringing forward new innovative technology and solutions together with global industrial partners.

The ENGAS laboratory structure is based upon a long-term goal to establish clean electricity and hydrogen as main energy carriers in the future.
