CO2 reuse and the Low Carbon Transition – recent presentations

Tim Dumenil, Creative Spirit at Pale Blue Dot Energy, presented at All-Energy 2017 and the Worldwide Distilled Spirits Conference (WDSC 2017). Tim’s presentation subjects included CO2 reuse and the low carbon transition for distilling. Below is an introduction to the three papers, with links to the full papers and posters/slides.

All-Energy is the UK’s largest renewable energy event which takes place annually showcasing the complete range of renewable and sustainable technologies.

The Worldwide Distilled Spirits Conference is a world leading conference dedicated to distilled spirits that take place every three years.

Strategic CO2 Storage Appraisal Project Webinar

In mid-2015, Pale Blue Dot Energy led a consortium of partners including Axis Well Technology, Costain and CO2DeepStore to deliver an appraised portfolio of offshore geological CO2 storage sites within the UKCS, de-risking the five selected storage sites. The results and materials are summarised here and available under license from the ETI here.

On the 9th June, the Global CCS Institute hosted a webinar where we provided a more detailed look at the results of this project. This webinar comprises a presentation of key results and findings followed by a Q&A session. This webinar can be accessed here.

Progressing Development of the UK’s Strategic Carbon Dioxide Storage Resource – An Introduction

Pale Blue Dot Energy, along with partners Axis Well Technology and Costain have recently completed a comprehensive 12 month study which seeks to progress the development of the UK’s strategic carbon dioxide storage resource.  The study which was commissioned by the Energy Technologies Institute with funding from DECC was focussed at the acceleration of strategically important CO2 storage capacity in the UK offshore area and thereby leverage the further investment to develop this capacity to meet UK needs.

Presentation: The Status of Carbon Capture & Storage within the UK

On Tuesday 13th October Hazel Clyne gave a presentation for the Energy Institute (Aberdeen, Highlands & Islands branch) on the Status of Carbon Capture & Storage within the UK.

As a technology that can prevent carbon dioxide from fossil fuel emissions entering the atmosphere, Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an attractive solution which needs to be made commercially viable.

The presentation summarises the status of CCS development activity in the UK from publically available information, including; a summary of project concept development activity to date, the status of the two CCS projects in the DECC CCS Commercialisation Competition, highlights of other potential key CCS projects (Caledonia, Teesside Collective, Don Valley) and an overview of the DECC storage appraisal project ongoing.

Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum on UK CCS Commercialisation

Alan James will be speaking at the Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum on Carbon Capture and Storage in the UK and next steps for commercialisation.  The event will take place in London on Tuesday 7th July.

This seminar will provide a timely opportunity to assess progress and next steps of the Government’s Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Commercialisation Programme as the UK seeks to move into Phase 2 of rollout.
