Norway's Aker Carbon Capture ACC-ME.OL said on Tuesday it would explore developing a full-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) project at a waste-to-energy plant in Stavanger on the country's west coast.

The project aims to capture up to 100,000 tonnes of CO2 per year from the waste incineration plant which provides district heating and electricity, according to Lyse, the regional energy firm which owns the plant.

Lyse sees CCS technology as a way to achieve its goal of carbon neutral operations by 2030, contributing to the overall reduction of the country's emissions.

It could become the second project to capture CO2 emissions at waste-to-energy plants in Norway, and the third onshore CCS project in the country.
