USN and Tel-Tek together possess a powerful and unique combination of cutting edge experience in process design, process evaluation, cost engineering, and environmental impact assessments, as well as expertise in using modern tools for modelling and simulation of processes. This knowledge is utilized and extended in research on CO2 capture processes.

The project brings together USN personnel from several departments at the Faculty of Technology and personnel from Tel-Tek's department GassTek as well as Tel-Tek associates.
