MCDERMOTT and Australia’s national science research agency CSIRO are working together to evaluate commercial opportunities to deploy CSIRO’s carbon capture technology for energy and heavy industry.

Amir Aryana, Research Group Leader for Energy at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), explained that the organisation has substantial research in developing low-emission technologies such as carbon capture.

He added: “By collaborating with the industry, we demonstrate the strength of applying key technologies at scale, while ensuring the lowest possible cost and highest performance.”

Samik Mukherjee, CEO and Executive VP of McDermott, said: “Carbon capture is fundamental to achieving a net-zero future while maintaining affordable, accessible energy and decarbonising resources. We welcome the opportunity to work with CSIRO to advance scalable, flexible carbon capture solutions for industrial and energy applications.”
