The key to successful carbon capture and storage: engaging the public

The key to successful carbon capture and storage: engaging the public
The key to successful carbon capture and storage: engaging the public
This book is written during the LRET Summer Collegium 2011 held in the University of Southampton. In recognition to the need to reduced CO2 emission from coal or fuel fired power plant, research project on an engineering system for carbon capture and storage (CCS) in ocean space utilisation is proposed in the collegium. This book is written to address the engineering challenges in our proposed CCS engineering system. It is recognised that the public perception is the main key to successful CCS project and an engineering system that involves public engagement in the CCS project in the early stage is proposed. The proposed project is known as the “Green Town” where it comprises of an air scrubbing towers that has the ability to capture CO2 from the air. The selected site for the case study would then be free of anthropogenic CO2. The captured CO2 will then be transported by pipelines and stored in depleted oil/gas field for a geological time scale. Hamburg in Germany is selected as the case study city since it is a port city and is close to available geological formations for CO2 storage. The K12-B gas field has also been identified as the proposed sequestration site. The CO2 pipelines will tie-in to existing gas pipelines when they are no longer in use in the near future and the CO2 injection system for the CO2 will be retrofitted to gas platform when the gas field is no longer in use. The cost, risk and legal issues for the proposed “Green Town” idea are also addressed as well. This project also designed and conducted specific surveys in Southampton and Hamburg to investigate the public perception towards the “Green Town” idea and CCS. Unique findings are found and presented in this book. This book makes an important contribution in addressing the need to engage the public at the early stage of the CCS project. The designed surveys successfully proved that the proposed “Green Town” idea could act as an effective ‘door opener’ to future CCS project. We hope that this book would be useful to engineers and scientists working on the areas of CCS and are looking forward to share our views on the unique findings about the public’s perception of CCS.

Abstract

This book is written during the LRET Summer Collegium 2011 held in the University of Southampton. In recognition to the need to reduced CO2 emission from coal or fuel fired power plant, research project on an engineering system for carbon capture and storage (CCS) in ocean space utilisation is proposed in the collegium. This book is written to address the engineering challenges in our proposed CCS engineering system. It is recognised that the public perception is the main key to successful CCS project and an engineering system that involves public engagement in the CCS project in the early stage is proposed. The proposed project is known as the “Green Town” where it comprises of an air scrubbing towers that has the ability to capture CO2 from the air. The selected site for the case study would then be free of anthropogenic CO2. The captured CO2 will then be transported by pipelines and stored in depleted oil/gas field for a geological time scale. Hamburg in Germany is selected as the case study city since it is a port city and is close to available geological formations for CO2 storage. The K12-B gas field has also been identified as the proposed sequestration site. The CO2 pipelines will tie-in to existing gas pipelines when they are no longer in use in the near future and the CO2 injection system for the CO2 will be retrofitted to gas platform when the gas field is no longer in use. The cost, risk and legal issues for the proposed “Green Town” idea are also addressed as well. This project also designed and conducted specific surveys in Southampton and Hamburg to investigate the public perception towards the “Green Town” idea and CCS. Unique findings are found and presented in this book. This book makes an important contribution in addressing the need to engage the public at the early stage of the CCS project. The designed surveys successfully proved that the proposed “Green Town” idea could act as an effective ‘door opener’ to future CCS project. We hope that this book would be useful to engineers and scientists working on the areas of CCS and are looking forward to share our views on the unique findings about the public’s perception of CCS.
