Norwegian scientists have developed a new, better and cheaper method for CO2 cleaning, reports Aftenposten.

Scientists at the University of Oslo and the Norwegian University for Science and Technology (NTNU) have turned the whole CO2 cleaning process upside down.

They have developed methods for removing 100 percent of the C02 amount in natural gas even before the gas is burned.

The technology is still at an early stage, and there is much work left before it can be introduced in large scale at a power plant.

However, the company Protia believes they will be able to test the technology within 3 to 5 years.
