Leaders - CCUS in Australia

Australian South West Hub Project
A unique project seeking containment through migration assisted trapping, the
Australian South West Hub Project is assessing the suitability of storing CO2 in the
deep saline aquifers in the Lesueur Formation of the Southern Perth Basin
 
CO2CRC Otway Stage 3 Project
CO2CRC’s $45 million Otway Stage 3 Monitoring and Verification Project will develop
cost effective and reliable monitoring techniques which significantly reduce the cost
and environmental footprint of CCUS monitoring
 
APAC Forum highlights CCS as key to developing a low carbon economy
The 2019 APAC CCS Forum was held in Brisbane on Friday 31st May, bringing
together over 100 delegates from government, industry, academic and the private
sector from across Australia and the region
 
Australian gas fields show that CO2 storage is secure
New research shows that carbon dioxide emissions can be captured and securely
stored beneath deep-seated and impermeable underground rocks
 
Projects and policy
 
Tata Chemicals Europe to build UK's largest Carbon Capture & Use plant
Tata Chemicals Europe has unveiled plans to build the UK’s first industrial-scale
CCU Demonstration Plant which will be operational by 2021
 
Optimising physical solvents
A process configuration for Acid Gas Recovery (AGR) for H2S capture and CO2 capture
has been designed and Techno-Economically analysed at Ulster University. By Dr.
Ashok Dave
 
IOGP report - the potential for CCS and CCU in Europe

Rotterdam – when CCS combines innovative engineering, investment and public support
The CATO “CCUS developments in the North Sea region” event in Rotterdam on June
26 showed how innovative engineering, investment and public support might be
combined to make carbon capture and storage viable. By Karl Jeffery
 
Capture and utilisation
 
Nano-bugs eat CO2 and make eco-friendly fuel
University of Boulder researchers have developed nanobio-hybrid organisms capable of
using airborne carbon dioxide and nitrogen to produce a variety of plastics and fuels, a
promising first step toward low-cost carbon sequestration and eco-friendly
manufacturing for chemicals
 
First snapshots of trapped CO2 molecules captured
Scientists from the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and
Stanford University have taken the first images of carbon dioxide molecules within a
molecular cage
 
Transport and storage
 
Shell QUEST project captures and stores 4m tonnes of CO2
In less than four years, the Quest carbon capture and storage facility has captured
and safely stored four million tonnes of CO2, ahead of schedule and at a lower cost
than anticipated
