|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.
