Offshore renewable energy powered CO2 injection: a small carbon footprint solution

Offshore renewable energy powered CO2 injection: a small carbon footprint solution
Offshore renewable energy powered CO2 injection: a small carbon footprint solution
The work contained herein is the culmination of two months of research and development (R and D). It represents an amalgamation of thoughts and multi-disciplinary expertise from individuals of varied technical backgrounds. It is the fourth of a four volume series, each volume being the work of a group of researchers. This fourth volume represents the work of the fourth team, which took the name of team ScarF, an acronym that stands for Small Carbon Footprint designers. The task was to develop a concept design and to propose a solution that would address some of the many challenges associated with CCS. The team comprised a naval architect, an offshore engineer, a hydrodynamicist, a mariner/seafarer and a structural engineer. It was hoped that this would bring a fresh, new and unencumbered perspective to the topic. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has been a field of vigorous R and D for some 30 years now. This book contains a novel concept design proposal that provides a means to effect this carbon storage in an environmentally friendly and safe manner. A high level overview of the concept design can be described thus - the concept entails offshore geological storage of carbon dioxide and the means to effect this storage is powered by marine renewable energy. A holistic approach was adopted by the group in addressing the subject of CCS. Division of labor and sharing of workload among team members made this complex and daunting topic surmountable. This book is intended primarily for those actively involved in research into the field of CCS. The intent is to put forth a compelling case and to provide a progressive outlook that veteran researchers on this topic may not commonly think about. It is equally relevant and readable by legislators, policy makers and anyone with a vested interest in issues pertaining to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions arising from the use of fossil fuels. Indeed, CCS has a strong association with the continued use of fossil fuels. Engineers and scientists in this field have a duty to eloquently and charismatically convince decision makers and the public about the pressing need for CCS.

Abstract

The work contained herein is the culmination of two months of research and development (R and D). It represents an amalgamation of thoughts and multi-disciplinary expertise from individuals of varied technical backgrounds. It is the fourth of a four volume series, each volume being the work of a group of researchers. This fourth volume represents the work of the fourth team, which took the name of team ScarF, an acronym that stands for Small Carbon Footprint designers. The task was to develop a concept design and to propose a solution that would address some of the many challenges associated with CCS. The team comprised a naval architect, an offshore engineer, a hydrodynamicist, a mariner/seafarer and a structural engineer. It was hoped that this would bring a fresh, new and unencumbered perspective to the topic. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has been a field of vigorous R and D for some 30 years now. This book contains a novel concept design proposal that provides a means to effect this carbon storage in an environmentally friendly and safe manner. A high level overview of the concept design can be described thus - the concept entails offshore geological storage of carbon dioxide and the means to effect this storage is powered by marine renewable energy. A holistic approach was adopted by the group in addressing the subject of CCS. Division of labor and sharing of workload among team members made this complex and daunting topic surmountable. This book is intended primarily for those actively involved in research into the field of CCS. The intent is to put forth a compelling case and to provide a progressive outlook that veteran researchers on this topic may not commonly think about. It is equally relevant and readable by legislators, policy makers and anyone with a vested interest in issues pertaining to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions arising from the use of fossil fuels. Indeed, CCS has a strong association with the continued use of fossil fuels. Engineers and scientists in this field have a duty to eloquently and charismatically convince decision makers and the public about the pressing need for CCS.
