GEOLOGICAL STORAGE OF CO2

Geological storage of CO2 is a technique designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the context of climate change.

BRGM plays a key role in research on CO2 storage in geological layers, especially deep aquifers. Our studies focus on safety criteria and storage behaviour, as well as on identifying and mapping promising geological formations.
