This pilot-scale project continued the development of new technologies to reduce the cost of carbon dioxide (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 was 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.
Recognized by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) at its Melbourne meeting in September 2004.
