Improving our ability to detect CCS related changes in rock properties from 4D seismic data By BIGCCS PhD student Dawid Szewczyk, NTNU Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an operation involving capturing CO2 from
Storage of CO2 into geological formations is a reasonable technical choice for decreasing carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere. Brine aquifers are considered one of the most favorable options for this purpose and leakage
GATEWAY is a new Horizon 2020 project focusing on accelerating CCS deployment. The strategy is to develop a model case aimed at commencing an initial cross-border gateway connecting available CO2 sources and possible sinks.
SINTEF Chief Scientist, Dr. Svend Tollak Munkejord has issued a new blog article on flow of CO2 in pipes. The blog is based on modelling work performed in the CO2 Dynamics project. Read More.
Five percent of global man-made CO2 emissions are caused by cement production. BIGCCS researcher, Dr. Kristin Jordal coordinates the new Horizon2020 project CEMCAP, which will investigate suitable technologies for reducing CO2 emissions from cement
