Aker Carbon Capture is ready to seize the day and help establish a real carbon capture and sequestration sector in Denmark, says Chief Commercial Officer Jon Christopher Knudsen in an interview with EnergyWatch.

"We're confident in our ability to act as a catalyst in the Danish climate debate, and that we can dispel some of the ongoing concerns about the actuality and high cost of CCS. We have solutions that fit both today and tomorrow and which can help Denmark achieve its goal to cut emissions within the short term. The main danger for us is this starting with insufficient speed," Knudsen says.
