Subject matter: Storage

The Carbolab project for methane (CH4) recovery and carbon dioxide (CO2) storage was launched in 2009 with an investment of more than €4m and is being conducted at the Montsacro mine (Asturias).

The aim of the Carbolab project is to create an underground laboratory for research, technological development and demonstration of CO2 sequestration in unmined coal seams. The aim is therefore to prepare a site for all sorts of tests on CO2 injection and the development of models to help predict the gas’s behaviour once injected in the coal seam, along with the recovery of the methane already present in it.
