Finding feasible carbon storage solutions

As energy companies transition to a low-carbon economy, engineers and geoscientists are tasked with determining how these organizations can implement carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technologies to reduce emissions.

For researchers investigating the feasibility of storing CO2 in deep saline aquifers, accessing up-to-date and relevant research articles and datasets can be a daunting task.

The innovation challenge

There is so much information and research literature, which can make it difficult to identify what is important and what is not. Professionals working in CCUS need access to the following:

  • The latest published research on CO2 storage in deep saline aquifers, including gaps in knowledge or areas of uncertainty

  • Information on the geology, hydrology and geochemistry of potential storage sites, including potential environmental risks or challenges

  • Data on the behavior of CO2 during injection and storage, enabling researchers to evaluate the potential for CO2 plume migration and leakage
