Energy From the Earth: Geologic Carbon Storage: Feasibility, Technology, and Challenges

Speakers:

  • Peter Warwick, Project Chief, U.S. Geological Survey Carbon Sequestration – Geologic Research and Assessments Project
  • Josh White, Research Scientist, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
  • Katherine Romanak, Research Associate, The University of Texas at Austin’s Bureau of Economic Geology

Carbon capture and storage is an important potential management strategy for greenhouse gas emissions. This briefing will
address geologic carbon storage, one avenue to sequester carbon dioxide from large stationary sources by injecting it deep
underground. Leading experts in the field will examine:

  • Geological requirements for carbon dioxide storage
  • Potential for storage in the U.S.
  • Facility design and technology
  • Strategies to minimize risks, including groundwater impacts and the potential for induced seismicity
  • Monitoring needs for storage verification and public assurance
