The International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control is a peer reviewed journal focusing primarily on Carbon Capture, Transport, Utilization & Storage. If your paper is not related to this area, it is not in scope for the Journal. The Journal invites research covering applied science and engineering advances in control of greenhouse gas emissions and reductions of their atmospheric concentrations through carbon dioxide capture, transport and storage. The Journal publishes results of experimental and pilot studies, technology demonstrations, process design and optimization, and techno-economic, policy, and life-cycle analyses relevant to applications in the power sector, major resource, manufacturing and production industries, and negative emissions technologies. Original research, review and comment papers are included.

The scope of the journal (whilst not exclusive to) includes:

CO2 Capture

New research results relevant for large scale CO2 capture systems using chemical solvents, solid sorbents, chemical looping, calcium looping, membranes and membrane reactors and hybrid systems, PSA, cryogenics etc.

  • Advances in CO2 capture processes (post combustion, pre combustion, oxy combustion) for power plants, cement and steel plants, refineries, petrochemicals, and other large industries
  • Experimental results at pilot level from laboratory scale to demonstration, and relevant modelling work for scaling up
  • CO2 capture process simulation for energy penalty reductions. Dynamic modelling.
  • Cost analyses and cost reduction strategies
  • Environmental impacts/risk, safety and life-cycle assessment of capture facilities

CO2 Transport

  • Design and material/technical issues for CO2 transport systems
  • Economic analyses and systems level optimization of CO2 transport systems
  • Risk assessments and safety issues
  • Permitting and regulatory issues

CO2 Geological Storage

  • Geological formation/storage capacity assessments
  • Matching emissions sources and storage opportunities
  • Site selection and characterization
  • Modelling the fate and effects of stored CO2
  • Integrity of the storage site, including caprocks and wells
  • Test injection research results
  • Risk assessments and management
  • Monitoring tool developments and applications
  • Environmental impact assessments
  • Demonstration project results and operational experiences
  • Induced seismicity, pressure maintenance, brine displacement, groundwater impacts
  • Remediation and measurement, monitoring and verification issues
  • Experiences from natural/industrial analogues

Alternative storage options

  • Ex situ mineral carbonation (research results, safety/risk assessments, environmental/energy/legal issues, public acceptance, regulation and costs)
  • Advanced weathering
  • Ocean storage

Alternative mitigation options/negative emission options

  • BioCCS and other bioenergy mitigation options
  • Negative emission accounting principles
  • Comparison of different GHG mitigation options such as energy efficiency, renewables and nuclear power and their potential to reduce CO2 emissions

System Integration and Infrastructure development

  • Flexibility of operation of plants and on energy systems, integration issues, infrastructure development issues, financing and policies

Implementation issues

  • Legal and regulatory developments/issues
  • Human/engineering capacity constraints
  • Public awareness/acceptance issues
  • Industry case studies on GHG mitigation technology implementation, learning by doing, knowledge transfer, stakeholder engagement and financing options

Integrated Assessments, economic instruments that would induce commercial CCS deployment

  • Energy and economic modelling of the role that CCS will play in the broader portfolio of emissions mitigation options under different scenarios
  • Analyses of policy options (national and international) to reduce GHG emissions and how these impact the commercial deployment of CCS systems
