COP26 and Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS)
Updated: 2 days ago
The recently held 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, a.k.a. COP26 - UN Climate Change Conference, was expected to result in significant commitments from the 197 attending parties towards mitigating Climate Change.
Although the conference ended with the adoption of less stringent resolutions on GHG emissions reduction hoped for by many delegates, the final text keeps alive the aim of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5 ⁰C.
The text included wording that encouraged more urgent emissions cuts and promised more climate finance for developing countries to adapt to climate impacts.
To reduce the impact on our climate from burning of fossil fuels, we need to consider the unavoidable trade-offs to be made in our efforts to phase out our reliance on these fuels when determining our energy policies going forward.
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has been identified as a crucial technology to deliver cleaner fossil fuels during the transition to net zero energy systems.
Since as early as 2019, Qteq Pty Ltd, together with its technology partners, has been involved with the deployment of MMV technologies for both CCS and CO2 EOR projects in Australia.
Our range of products and services help to identify suitable geological formations for permanent CO2 sequestration, characterise in-situ injection conditions and map the subsequent migration of CO2 plumes throughout the disposal formation.
We can also monitor the long-term integrity of overlying geological traps, as well as mechanical integrity of injection and monitoring wells.
