CCS Technology Focus of DOE Best Practices

 
CCS-Technology

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has been distinguished as one of the more promising methods for assessing potential carbon dioxide storage sites, and is now the focus of a series of the DOE’s “best practices” manuals.

Developed and implemented by the Office of Fossil Energy’s (FE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), Site Screening, Site Selection and Initial Characterization for storage of CO2 in Deep Geologic Formations seeks to become a valuable resource for project developers and CO2 producers and transporters.

The newest manual is the fourth in the series, and focuses on the exploration phase of site characterization process, and provides guidelines for paring down potential sub-regions into qualified sites.  Three key stages are described: Site screening, site selection, and initial characterization.

Implementation and development of the best practices found in Site Screening, Site Selection and Initial Characterization for storage of CO2 in Deep Geologic Formations could be instrumental in creating industry standards and guidelines regarding CCS.
