Activities: Geological storage of CO2

EnergICs: Carnot Institute support to boost competitiveness in the energy sector

The BRGM Carnot Institute is one of the 5 leading public research organisations with the Carnot Label involved in the EnergICs project, designed to boost technological innovation on energy in micro-enterprises, SMEs and middle-market companies.

Satellites and the Web to keep a close watch on underground storage

Storing natural gas underground is one solution to keep supplies secure and absorb variations in demand and peaks in consumption, but this requires specific surveillance. The web-based geo-surveillance platform developed by the Web-RDS project is an innovative solution that combines observations...

SECURe : a H2020 project to provide best practices for geological CO2 storage

The H2020 project SECURe, for Subsurface Evaluation of CCS and Unconventional Risks, started on June 1st, 2018. BRGM leads the work package 2: environmental baseline and monitoring strategies.

Geological storage of CO2: european research in the frontline

The BRGM was recently selected as the coordinator of the European ENOS project, which aims to break through the scientific barriers to widespread onshore CO2 storage in Europe.

CO2 capture and storage: research institutes across Europe join forces through a new scientific project

A new project named ENOS (ENabling ONshore CO2 storage in Europe), that unites almost 30 entities (SME’s, industry and research organisations), was launched in September 2016: the main objectives of the European Horizon 2020 project are to increase field experience relevant to geological storage of...

CO2GeoNet: the European Network of Excellence on the geological storage of CO2

CO2GeoNet, the European Network of Excellence on the geological storage of CO2, brings together 26 public research institutes and more than 300 researchers, spanning 19 European countries. BRGM is much involved in managing this network.

Successfully combining CO2 storage and geothermal heat extraction

Storing dissolved CO2 in saline aquifers close to industrial emissions sources is the idea being investigated by the CO2Dissolved project as a promising alternative to large scale storage.

FluidSTORY: investigating the feasibility of a solution for future below-ground energy storage

FluidSTORY, launched in 2016, is a 4-year project co-funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR). The aim is to investigate the feasibility of the EMO technique (Electrolysis-Methanation-Oxycombustion) as a solution for future energy storage. The EU has set a target of 20% renewables in...
