Japan sets carbon capture roadmap with 6-12 million tonne/year target by 2030

on; 26 Jan 2023 09:47PM

„TOKYO : Japan’s industry ministry on Thursday set a target of annual carbon dioxide (CO2) storage capacity of 6-12 million tonnes by 2030 under a long-term roadmap for carbon capture and storage (CCS). Japan sees CCS technology – which removes CO2 emissions from the atmosphere and stores them underground, and which a host of Japanese companies said on Thursday they were working on – as essential to achieving its goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.“


Nature-Krevor et al. (2023): Subsurface carbon dioxide and hydrogen storage for a sustainable energy future

Samuel Krevor, Heleen de Coninck, Sarah E. Gasda, Navraj Singh Ghaleigh, Vincent de Gooyert, Hadi Hajibeygi, Ruben Juanes, Jerome Neufeld, Jennifer J. Roberts, Floris Swennenhuis IN: Nat Rev Earth Environ (2023).

Gigatonne scale geological storage of carbon dioxide and energy (such as hydrogen) will be central aspects of a sustainable energy future, both for mitigating CO2 emissions and providing seasonal-based green energy provisions. In this Review, the authors evaluate the feasibility and challenges of expanding subsurface carbon dioxide storage into a global-scale business, and explore how this experience can be exploited to accelerate the development of underground hydrogen storage.


44.01 Partners With Leading Companies To Expand In UAE

by Petya Trendafilova on

44.01 – the startup that can turn CO2 into a mineral using a completely natural process announced a new partnership with major companies in UAE. It will work with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), Fujairah Natural Resources Corporation (FNRC), and renewable energy company Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) to pilot its technology of mineralizing CO2 into rock. The initiative is the first carbon-negative project by an energy company in the Middle East and the first peridotite mineralization project to utilize seawater. It will also be 44.01’s largest pilot project to date, and its first project outside Oman.

This study attempts to evaluate the feasibility of CO2 storage in carbonate chalk formations by focusing on changes in storage capacity (porosity) and injectivity (permeability) over time. A series of laboratory tests were carried out on Stevns Klint chalk from Denmark after exposure to CO2 for 37 days at a fluid pressure of 15 MPa and a temperature of 50 °C.


Erste Zulassung für CO₂-Speicher in Dänemark

SPIEGEL online, 06.12.2022, 14.44 Uhr

„Dänische Behörden haben erstmals ein Pilotprojekt zugelassen, bei dem bis zu 15.000 Tonnen CO₂ in einem früheren Ölfeld in der Nordsee gespeichert werden sollen. Es sei das erste Mal, dass eine Genehmigung für ein CO₂-Speicherprojekt in dem skandinavischen EU-Land erteilt worden sei, hieß es von der dänischen Energiebehörde (Energistyrelsen). Die Zulassung sei ein wichtiger Meilenstein für das Land.“


Alkan et al. (2023): Chapter 8 – Geologic carbon storage: key components

Hakan Alkan, Oleksandr Burachok, Patrick Kowollik IN: Oil and Gas Chemistry Management Series, Surface Process, Transportation, and Storage, Editor(s): Qiwei Wang, Vol 4, Gulf Professional Publishing, 2023, Pages 325-422,

The key components of the GCS full-chain applications are elaborated and discussed based on recent developments and operations. The aim is to look at GCS from an engineering perspective to highlight its role and value and motivate more and faster initiatives also providing application examples for each component.


Study demonstrates efficiency of deltaic sediments for storing organic carbon for hundreds of thousands of years

by University of Barcelona on

An international research team with participation of the UAB team has succeeded in quantifying the volume of continental organic carbon stored in delta sediments from 75 million years ago. The research, published in Nature Geoscience, demonstrates that deltas are large stores of the planet’s carbon and, therefore, important climate regulators over geological time periods.
