Offshore Thermal Power with CCS: An Alternative to CO2 Transportation

Offshore Thermal Power with CCS: An Alternative to CO2 Transportation
Offshore Thermal Power with CCS: An Alternative to CO2 Transportation
One of the most important issues facing our generation is that of climate change. As the world’s demand for energy increases so do our carbon dioxide emissions. It is therefore vital that something be done to reduce the concentration of these emissions in the atmosphere. One such method is to capture the carbon dioxide and sequester it.

This book was written as an output of the 2011 LRET Collegium on Carbon Capture and Sequestration in Ocean space. We, the authors, came to participate in this collegium without any prior expertise or predefined opinions about the subject. A total of four books were written, of which this is one, each with an individual viewpoint on the subject matter. It has been an inspiring challenge for us to complete this book, ready for printing, in little over six weeks.

We would therefore like to stress that this publication should be seen as an example of what can be achieved by encouraging cooperation between institutions and by thinking outside of the box. Furthermore, based on the conclusions of this book we would strongly encourage further studies and detailed analysis of the subject.
One of the purposes of the collegium was to encourage interaction between different professions and cultures. Even though all five of the authors of this book are engineers from an offshore/naval architecture background, we appreciate the opportunity to broaden our horizons. We have done this both in terms of communicating with other groups who had more diverse backgrounds but also by researching subjects such as law, social studies and economics ourselves.

Finally, we hope that our contribution to the subject of CCS and the climate change debate will inspire others to pursue research in the same spirit that has been present in this collegium by considering large scale engineering problems in a more holistic way.

Abstract

One of the most important issues facing our generation is that of climate change. As the world’s demand for energy increases so do our carbon dioxide emissions. It is therefore vital that something be done to reduce the concentration of these emissions in the atmosphere. One such method is to capture the carbon dioxide and sequester it.

This book was written as an output of the 2011 LRET Collegium on Carbon Capture and Sequestration in Ocean space. We, the authors, came to participate in this collegium without any prior expertise or predefined opinions about the subject. A total of four books were written, of which this is one, each with an individual viewpoint on the subject matter. It has been an inspiring challenge for us to complete this book, ready for printing, in little over six weeks.

We would therefore like to stress that this publication should be seen as an example of what can be achieved by encouraging cooperation between institutions and by thinking outside of the box. Furthermore, based on the conclusions of this book we would strongly encourage further studies and detailed analysis of the subject.
One of the purposes of the collegium was to encourage interaction between different professions and cultures. Even though all five of the authors of this book are engineers from an offshore/naval architecture background, we appreciate the opportunity to broaden our horizons. We have done this both in terms of communicating with other groups who had more diverse backgrounds but also by researching subjects such as law, social studies and economics ourselves.

Finally, we hope that our contribution to the subject of CCS and the climate change debate will inspire others to pursue research in the same spirit that has been present in this collegium by considering large scale engineering problems in a more holistic way.
