Le Gallo also presented as a poster titled "Geological investigations for CO2 storage: from seismic and well data to 3D modeling." This described a joint BRGM/Geogreen study that was part of the CPER Artenay project aimed at "quantifying the environmental benefits and the technico-economic feasibility of storing CO2 issued from a bio-ethanol distillery into a deep saline aquifer in the Paris Basin, France. This communication focuses on the geological investigations that ultimately lead to defining an optimal location for an injection site in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project. This paper presents a new approach for the pre-site characterization going from seismic and well data analyses to storage design. First, the general context of the area has been set followed by seismic interpretation. Those investigations lead to a geological surface modeling taking into account the basin border near the location of the project. The next step is the properties modeling using sequence stratigraphy approach. This work will enable the choice of the optimal injection location regarding the geological and environmental constrains."
Remaining within the context of the CPER Artneay project, Le Gallo presented a second poster titled "Can carbon capture and storage on small sources be profitable?" This study, also performed with BRGM, dealt with "a variant CCS system where the stored CO2 comes from biomass instead of fossil fuels. Several industrial sectors could be investigated like the paper industry, the electric sector, or the biofuel sector. This last option called BCCS (Biomass & Carbon Capture and Storage) may be considered as a relatively cheap solution, in favourable conditions, which can potentially contribute to a net GHG emission reduction, seeing that CO2 from biomass is considered neutral. This poster has presented the results of the comprehensive Artenay project study on two sugar beet bio refineries. It included geological modelling, process design and economic evaluation."
From the GHGT10: The organising committee (OC) of the 10th International Conference on Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies, would like to thank all who participated in the GHGT-10 and made it such a success. With 1,600 delegates representing 55 countries, it was truly an international platform for the sharing of knowledge and ideasThe Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies (GHGT) conference series was formed in 1997 following the merger of the earlier series of International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Removal (ICCDR) and the Greenhouse Gas Mitigation options conference. IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEA GHG) are the guardians of the GHGT conferences which are held every two years. The conference series rotates between, North America, Europe and Asia.
