|CCUS Management Plan|
(2nd edition). The main strategic objective of the CCUS Management Plan is to create an environment conducive to investment in R&D, to promote the creation of an innovative business fabric and raise technological capacity in processes to improve efficiency, recruitment, transportation, storage and uses of CO2, and to promote the implementation of these technologies in the industry.
|Carbon capture: Technologies to fulfil The Paris Agreement|
Update of the 2014 monograph on Carbon Capture published by PTECO2. Once the financial crisis is over and with the horizon of fulfil The Paris Agreement, there are enough novelties that justify this reissue:
|Public perception of CCS|
The main objective of this study has been to characterize the public perception of CCS technologies.
|Geological CO2 Storage: Climate change mitigation|
Update of the 2012 Monographic (2nd edition). The geological storage of CO2 is the final stage of the entire process of Carbon Capture, Transportation and Storage of carbon dioxide from anthropogenic emissions in large fossil energy consuming centers. The need to store large volumes so that the technologies are effective gives a fundamental importance to the identification of sites with storage capacity, to an adequate characterization of them and to the realization of a series of studies that allow a correct evaluation and prevention of the risks associated with these technologies, as occurs in any industrial activity.
|Laboratory procedures for petrophysical characterization and control of CO2 geological storages in deep saline aquifers|
The main objective of this publication is to make this experience available to the public, collecting the best practices that have been identified and, at the same time, highlighting the avant-garde position that Spanish research in this field occupies in the European context.
|Geological CO2 Storage: Climate change mitigation (2016)|
Update of the 2012 Monographic (1st edition). The geological storage of CO2 is the final stage of the entire process of Carbon Capture, Transportation and Storage of carbon dioxide from anthropogenic emissions in large fossil energy consuming centers. The need to store large volumes so that the technologies are effective gives a fundamental importance to the identification of sites with storage capacity, to an adequate characterization of them and to the realization of a series of studies that allow a correct evaluation and prevention of the risks associated with these technologies, as occurs in any industrial activity.
|Legal framework adopted in the EU|
|Methodological guide for the preparation of studies of environmental impact of ceoductos|
In order to establish homogeneous criteria applicable to the preparation of environmental documents required in the required environmental assessment, the CO2 Spanish Technological Platform (PTECO2) promotes the development of this methodological guide.
|Socio-economic Aspects of CCS technological and commercial development|
The present study contemplates carrying out an analysis exercise based on secondary sources and existing documentation to describe the framework and critical factors what concerns the implementation of CCS. Based on this information, and with technical advice from PTECO2, a technical scenario has been drawn up on which to carry out a quantitative analysis of the possible deployment and generalization of these technologies in socioeconomic terms.
|CO2 transportation: state of the art, alternatives and challenges|
This new technical paper focuses on CO2 transportation as one more technology to be developed in a coordinated way so as to make CO2 reduction goals viable from technical and economic and also regulatory viewpoints.
|Carbon capture: technologies for a large-scale capturing|
Carbon capture is the first phase of CCS technologies and the stage that gives meaning to the rest. Therefore, is the area with more development in recent years.
|Uses of CO2: a pathway to sustainability|
This third paper in a series on carbon capture, transportation, storage and utilisation (CCS) that began in 2012 analyses in depth the current state of technologies for reusing carbon dioxide, either as a raw material for making other products or as a main or alternative fluid in certain processes.
|CO2 storage: technologies, opportunities and prospects|
This PTECO2 publication expands upon various aspects of geological CO2 storage such as characterising the structure of the subsoil to be used for storage or the surface operation, with the aim of storing CO2 with optimal security for both people and the environment. The paper was drawn up with contributions by experts from the institutions belonging to the Platform.
|Strategic Deployment Document and R&D and Innovation Agenda (2011)|
This PTECO2 publication seeks to identify the most recommendable technological deployment on the basis of an overview of the current state of CCS technologies, and to provide an R&D and innovation agenda with a set of proposals for the short and medium term within the global context of climate change, taking the “Technological Pathway” as a benchmark.
|Comparative study on the regulatory framework for Carbon capture|
Study of the different legal regimes on CCS, adopted by certain countries chosen because of their belonging to our environment, Member States of the European Union (EU), as well as, outside the scope of the EU, by the maturity stage of The regulation of some of the activities of the CAC.
|PTECO2 Vision Document (2008)|
The Spanish CO2 Platform was set up in 2006 in order to help develop CO2 capture, transportation, storage and utilisation technologies and to improve energy efficiency so that Spanish industry and technology might aid compliance with the Kyoto Protocol objectives. This document sets out the scenario in 2005, the industry’s priorities and PTECO2’s vision, goals, structure and functions, along with its main recommendations.
|Strategic Deployment Document and R&D and Innovation Agenda (2008)|
In this first deployment document PTECO2 proposed a prioritised national action plan with the aim of achieving, together with the authorities, the scientific community, industry and society, a commercial development and rollout of CO2 capture and storage technologies in 2020 in Spain as a key means of effectively reducing CO2 emissions so as to mitigate climate change.
