Combat climate change through technology

TCM-documentary on BBC

TCMs Chairman Tore Amundsen is interviewed at Mongstad for the BBC Horizons series.

The groundbreaking carbon capture testing at Technology Centre Mongstad will soon reach an even wider audience globally. The documentary shot today at Mongstad could reach close to 200 million viewers.

- We are excited to be part of such a recognized documentary series as BBC Horizons. With such a programme focusing on Carbon Capture, people all over the world can get more informed about CCS and the need for the  technologies we are developing to address climate change, and the significant contributions coming from Norway in that context, says Vegar Stokset, TCMs Head of Communication.

The series is a journey across the world meeting the people who are finding solutions to some of the planet’s biggest challenges of the next decade. Some of the questions the series will seek answers to are: " How will we provide enough food, energy and clean water in a future with a global population expected to rise to 9 billion? What will be the biggest advances in health and medicine and the best prospects for protecting the environment?"

UK based Two Four Broadcast is producing the series which last time around had a quantified audience of 185 million people worldwide.

The series will air on BBC World News later this year, and will be advertised on this web page.

Technology Centre Mongstad is the world’s largest facility for testing and improving CO2 capture. Knowledge gained will prepare the ground for CO2 capture initiatives to combat climate change.

TCM is a joint venture between the Norwegian state, Statoil, Shell and Sasol.
