InnSep AS is a spinout from the Department of Energy and Process Engineering at the Norwegian University of Science Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway. The company was established in 2011 to develop a scalable and flexible gas/liquid separator (Lynx) for removing droplets from a gas stream.
In 2011 the Lynx concept was awarded several innovation awards and was funded by Innovation Norway, NTNU Discovery Fund, SMN1 Startstøtte and Norwegian Research Council to develop and test the full scale prototype. The underlying concept in Lynx was successfully tested with hydrocarbons up to 60bars in CEESI, USA, in 2012. At the moment, Lynx is being qualified for offshore equipment in DEMO2000 financed project with Statoil ASA in Norway. Our target is to qualify for both retrofit and new installations.
