Overview

Creativity, competence, and complementarity

Two projects, two partnerships, the same goal

Partners involvement and role in
- the initial CO2-Dissolved project (P1) and
- the follow-up PILOTE CO2-Dissolved project (P2)

Partner

P1 / P2

Role

BRGM

France

P1 & P2

Coordinator

Initiator of the partnership

In charge of several technical tasks (reactive transport modeling, geochemical and geophysical monitoring, risk assessment, etc.)

BGR

Germany

P1

Importance of including a European partner outside France. Expertise: in-depth knowledge of the German geothermal and CCS market. Provided the data necessary for modeling a German test-case.

CFG Services

France

P1 & P2

Study of the technical-economic viability of the CO2-Dissolved concept. Expertise: in-depth knowledge of both the technology and the economics of low-medium enthalpy geothermal energy exploitation in France. Complementary to GEOGREEN's CCS expertise

ENERTIME

France

P2

Assessment of the integration of a heat pump system in the CO2-Dissolved concept and its economic viability. Expertise : Expert in providing industrial solutions based on thermodynamics for energy efficiency, special turbomachinery design and heat pump technology provider

GEOGREEN

France

P1 & P2

Industrial lead for P2 (PILOTE CO2-Dissolved)

Study of the technical-economic viability of the CO2-Dissolved concept. Expertise: final integration task of the project relying, in particular, on a Life Cycle Analysis of the whole CCS chain: CO2 capture, dissolution in brine, injection in the aquifer, and heat recovery. Complementary to CFG's geothermal expertise

GEO RESSOURCES

France

P1 & P2

Increase the understanding of the geochemical impact of continuous injection of CO2-rich brine in an aquifer. Design of a new experimental facility dedicated to this. Sound experience acquired during former or ongoing experimental CCS work.

IRENEE

(Uni of Lorraine)

France

P2

Assessment of the regulatory framework necessary to enable the storage of CO2 in dissolved form. Identification of the legal rules potentially applicable, as dissolved CO2 is not recognised by existing law. The task takes a forward-looking perspective.

Drawing up a panorama of the regulatory framework for the deployment of this new technology.

LEO

(Uni of Orléans)

France

P1 & P2

Economic assessment to determine the viability of the concept. Design and modeling of the new economics around the CO2-DISSOLVED concept

PARTNERING IN INNOVATION

USA

P1 & P2

This SME provides their novel patented aqueous-based in-well technology. This system is capable of capturing CO2 from flue gas emissions by means of dissolution in water, taking benefit of the in-well high pressure. This has a double benefit for the project, as both the capture and the CO2 dissolution obstacles have a solution

PASSAGES

(Uni of Pau & Pays de l'Adour)

France

P2

Analysis of representations of industrial activities concerning the subsurface by populations, specifically CO2 injection activities.

Analysis of transformations in environmental governance due to global changes.
