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 of CO2 from these storage sites is one of the main concerns about it. To decrease the risk of leakage, the Read More
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. Project coordinator, Dr. Marie Bysveen, and, Dr. Jens Hetland, describe the project on SINTEF Energy’s blog. Read more.
