Alternative Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Pathways Workshop

June 25, 2014 – June 27, 2014 all-day
Oxford Martin School
34 Broad Street
Oxford, Oxfordshire OX1

Only Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) can permit us to continue to use our fossil fuel resources while not significantly increasing the atmospheric CO2 burden. In its most commonly understood form, CCS involves capturing CO2 from fuel conversion facilities, purifying and compressing it and then transporting it in dense liquid form to permanent storage sites in deep saline formations or similar sub-surface structures.

Other approaches that also prevent CO2 from fossil fuel conversion from entering the atmosphere, such as mineralisation or sea water bicarbonate sequestration, may offer advantages under some circumstances.  These routes may also incorporate alternative capture methods.

This workshop looks at such alternatives to see how they can complement more conventional CCS approaches. A particular focus of the workshop is on the technical feasibility for long term storage of significant amounts of anthropogenic CO2 using such methods such as mineralisation, enhanced weathering and ocean alkalinity enhancement.

This event is partnering with the CO2Chem Mineralisation Cluster
