Links - Other H2020-funded projects with a CO2 storage component
The Horizon 2020 project S4CE aims to develop, test and implement technologies needed for successfully detecting, quantifying and mitigating the risks connected with geo-energy operations in the sub-surface.
The operations considered by this consortium include geothermal energy, enhanced gas recovery, carbon sequestration, and unconventional operations.
The SECURe project (Subsurface Evaluation of CCS and Unconventional Risks) will gather scientific evidence relating to monitoring the environment and mitigating risk in order to guide subsurface geoenergy development.
The three-year project will produce a set of best practice recommendations for establishing environmental baseline conditions for unconventional hydrocarbon production and the geological storage of anthropogenic CO2, including outputs addressing how to develop effective communications strategies with different stakeholder groups. The two technologies have different applications and end results while sharing some similarities in approach, which necessitate safe and monitored deployment.
STEMM-CCS is an ambitious multi-disciplinary project that will deliver new approaches, methodologies and tools for the safe operation of offshore carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) sites. The storage of CO2 in underground reservoirs, for example in depleted oil and gas fields or aquifers, is a demonstrated technology on land and - to a more limited extent - in marine systems. STEMM-CCS will develop approaches to help ensure we select appropriate marine storage sites and can monitor them effectively, thus further increasing confidence in CCS as a viable option for reducing atmospheric CO2.
Carbfix2 - Scaling up the CarbFix demonstrated technology to general and economically viable complete CCS chain
CarbFix is the industrial process to capture CO2 and other sour gases from emission sources and permanently store it as rock in the subsurface. The process can furthermore be applied in relation to direct capture of CO2 from air. In the current CarbFix2 project, supported by The European Union, we are demonstrating how this secure, cost-effective and environmentally benign method to reduce atmospheric CO2 levels can be applied world-wide.
