This multifaceted project is focused on geologic storage options for carbon dioxide (CO2) as a greenhouse gas mitigation option, and on assembling an authoritative body for Europe on geologic sequestration. Major objectives include formation of a partnership consisting, at first, of 13 key European research centers and other expert collaborators in the area of geological storage of CO2, identification of knowledge gaps in the long-term geologic storage of CO2, and formulation of new research projects and tools to eliminate these gaps. This project will result in realignment of European national research programs regarding site selection, injection operations, monitoring, verification, safety, environmental protection, and training standards.
Recognized by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) at its Berlin meeting in September 2005.
