  • 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 ...

  • Case study - Westbay System Data improved understanding of groundwater conditions in geologic repository

    Multilevel well system delivered accurate measurements of hydraulic properties CHALLENGE One of the major challenges facing  ANDRA during the initial stages of  construction was to monitor the effects of  construction on the geological formations  overlying the argillite. SOLUTION To monitor changes in ...


  • Undersea storage for US carbon emissions

    Researchers are working hard on methods to mitigate, reduce or compensate for CO2 emissions. One of these, geological carbon sequestration, involves injecting CO2 into deep saline aquifers, or depleted oil and gas reservoirs so that it is not released into the atmosphere where it contributes to global warming. Now US researchers have found a potential new location for undersea CO2 storage, which ...

  • The commercial deployment of carbon capture and storage technology

    One of the most significant impediments to a carbon dioxide capture and storage industry is not technical but legal-managing liabilities associated with the long-term geologic storage of carbon dioxide in reservoirs, particularly deep saline. There is no dedicated regulatory regime in place at either the federal or state level for capture and ...

  • The trouble with angels: carbon capture and storage hurdles and solutions

    This article examines the challenges to commercial deployment of carbon capture and storage using geologic sequestration. The authors argue that CCS will never become a reality without early federal investment in research and development, a uniform federal regulatory framework, and a framework to address the currently unknown and unquantifiable liabilities. They suggest a model similar to the ...

  • National implementation of carbon capture and storage: The case of Germany

    As Germany is – and will remain for the immediate future – dependent on coal for generating power and ensuring energy supply, the German Government and various representatives from the private sector are currently assessing and promoting so called “Clean Coal” technologies, such as Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). Scientific research and industrial pilot projects for capturing and storing carbon ...

  • Carbon dioxide ocean and ground storage as a method of climate change mitigation

    Global warming-induced climate change is one of the significant civilisation threats of the modern times. Human-induced enhanced global warming, via the greenhouse effect resulting from high carbon dioxide emissions, poses a substantial danger to the environment we live in. Consequences of global warming can be devastating for the present, but mainly for the future generations. This paper reviews ...

  • Regulating carbon capture and storage in the European union: An economic and legal analysis

    Capture of CO2 produced during electricity and heat generation and its subsequent geological storage is receiving increased attention in the discussion about emission reductions. This commentary discusses the importance of temporal and spatial system boundaries for competition among different CO2 abatement options in the context of the European Emission Trading Scheme. Referring to the recent ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Accounting Framework for Carbon Capture and Storage Projects

    Foreword Meeting the global challenge to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and avoid dangerous climate impacts requires deploying a portfolio of emission reduction technologies. We must both commit to broad and deep efficiencies in the way our societies’ consume energy and to significant increases in power supplies from low carbon energy sources. At the same time, it ...

  • Health, Safety and Environmental Risks of Underground Co2 Storage – Overview of Mechanisms and Current

    CO2 capture and storage (CCS) in geological reservoirs may be part of a strategy to reduce global anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Insight in the risks associated with underground CO2 storage is needed to ensure that it can be applied as safe and effective greenhouse mitigation option. This paper aims to give an overview of the current (gaps in) knowledge of risks associated with underground CO2 ...

  • Air pollution impacts from carbon capture and storage (CCS)

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) consists of the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from power plants and/or CO2-intensive industries such as refineries, cement, iron and steel, its subsequent transport to a storage site, and finally its injection into a suitable underground geological formation for the purposes of permanent storage. It is considered to be one of the medium term 'bridging ...

  • 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 ...
