CO2 Capture Project - Phase 2 (Project Completed)
Nominators: United Kingdom (lead), Italy, Norway, and United States
This pilot-scale project continued the development of new technologies to reduce the cost of CO2 separation, capture, and geologic storage from combustion sources such as turbines, heaters and boilers. These technologies will be applicable to a large fraction of CO2 sources around the world, including power plants and other industrial processes. The ultimate goal of the entire project is to reduce the cost of CO2 capture from large fixed combustion sources by 20-30%, while also addressing critical issues such as storage site/project certification, well integrity and monitoring. Phase 2 of this project was successfully completed and Phase 3: The Demonstration of Capture and Storage Technologies, began in January 2009 and is expected to be completed in 2012.
Recognized by the CSLF at its Melbourne meeting, September 2004
