Carbon Capture and Storage

Carbon Capture and Storage

It may be at an early stage of development - and capturing CO2 cost-effectively from the exhaust gases of power stations remains a challenge. But if successful, carbon capture and storage (also known as carbon sequestration) could allow fossil fuels to be burnt without releasing CO2 into the atmosphere and contributing to global warming.
 
Carbon storage is already happening to a limited extent. Re-injecting CO2 from gas wells to maintain reservoir pressure, for example, is a routine operation. Yet there's a bewildering range of other options under consideration. Some may be technically achievable - but do they make environmental or commercial sense?   
 
We've carried out research for the International Energy Agency and the Coal Research Establishment into the sequestration of CO2 in carbonate minerals both from a technical and economic perspective. If you're exploring the options, our experience in energy, the environment, mining, geology, hydrology and geotechnics could help.
