NPPD taking part in CO2 infrastructure study

Battelle notes that the program is the first large-scale project for the mid-continent and represents an important step forward in carbon storage, exceeding DOE’s 50 million metric tons safe storage objective. The proposal is based on a combination of three Phase I CarbonSAFE projects; helping to consolidate resources and align efforts into one strategy for achieving a successful commercial-scale storage project in the mid-continent region before 2025.

The Carbon Storage Assurance Facility Enterprise (CarbonSAFE) Initiative projects focus on development of geologic storage sites for the storage carbon dioxide (CO2) from industrial sources.
