  • Safety/risk assessment methodologies of deep geological facilities: results from a cross–national comparison

    Any geological disposal/storage facility must prove its safe performance prior to licensing, regardless of whether the compound is solid radioactive waste (RW) or gaseous carbon dioxide (CO2). The disposal/storage facility is considered safe if it meets the relevant safety standards and proves its reliable safe performance over defined timescales. This paper presents a ...

  • Carbon dioxide capture and storage scenarios: a case study of the East Midlands and Yorkshire (UK)

    This paper uses quantitative electricity supply scenarios to explore the potential for CO2 storage at locations in the Southern North Sea basin from point sources within a case study region that consists of the East Midlands combined with Yorkshire and Humberside in the UK. The reactions to these scenarios from a variety of stakeholders from the public and private sectors are explored using an ...

  • CCS demonstration in developing countries: priorities for a financing mechanism for carbon dioxide capture and storage

    Climate Change and CCS In facing the challenge of mitigating global climate change, world leaders have acknowledged that no single solution exists, and therefore, a portfolio of carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction technologies and methods will be needed to successfully confront rising emissions. Due to their dependency on fossil fuels, the energy supply and industrial sectors are the greatest ...

  • The purpose of the Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) Guidelines is not to make a case for or against CCS, but rather to develop practical considerations for demonstrating and deploying CCS technologies.

    CCS is a broad term that encompasses a number of technologies that can be used to capture CO2 from point sources, such as power plants and other industrial facilities; compress it; transport it mainly by pipeline to suitable locations; and inject it into deep subsurface geological formations for indefinite isolation from the atmosphere. CCS is a critical option in the portfolio of solutions ...

  • Comparison of monitoring programmes of ultimate disposal facilities for radioactive waste and carbon dioxide

    Reliable and cost–effective monitoring is an important part of making geological repositories safe, effective, and acceptable for radioactive waste disposal and carbon dioxide (CO2) storage. The major objectives of monitoring should include the evolution of disposal systems compared to the baseline data of the undisturbed site, as well as the validation of the assumptions and ...

  • Can we bury the carbon dioxide problem?

    Seriously — carbon capture and storage could be a game-changer. Mention “carbon capture and storage” — the process of trapping carbon dioxide produced in fossil-fuel burning or other industrial processes and burying it underground — in polite company, and you’re likely to be pounced on. It’s absurdly expensive. It can never be rolled ...

  • Comparison of cost estimates of final disposal facilities for carbon dioxide and high–level radioactive waste

    This paper presents new research and new cost calculations for carbon dioxide (CO2) disposal in Cuba and Lithuania, as well as lessons from the comparative assessment of CO2 and high–level Radioactive Waste (RW) disposal costs in several countries. Nuclear power and CO2 Capture and Disposal (CCD) ...
