The Challenge

Human activity, such as the burning of fossil fuels, land clearing and agricultural practices is the main cause of global warming. Our challenge is to reduce emissions from fossil fuels by more than 90 percent as their global demand continues to increase

What We Do

At CO2CRC we research a range of technologies that enable the capture of carbon dioxide from fuel combustion and industrial processes. We investigate advanced monitoring techniques of CO2, once trapped in underground rock formations.

Our research aims to reduce global emissions from fossil fuels, to reduce the cost of implementing carbon capture and storage technologies, while maintaining the strictest safety standards. CO2CRC has expertise in the following:

  • Geochemistry
  • CO2 Plume simulation
  • Membranes
  • Economics
  • Reservoir characterisation
  • Sink-source matching
  • Absorption
  • Reservoir engineering
  • Well logging
  • Capacity Modelling
  • Process engineering
  • Geomechanics
  • Techno-economic assessment
  • Adsorption
  • Injection engineering
  • Solvents
  • Stakeholder management
  • CO2 Monitoring
  • Geophysics
  • Caprock strength
  • Legislation & Regulation
  • Community engagement
  • Well engineering
  • Cryogenics
  • Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis
  • Project management
  • Technology R&D

Carbon Capture

We develop and refine technologies that capture millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide that would otherwise have escaped into the atmosphere.

Storage & Monitoring

We work to introduce the most advanced techniques in monitoring carbon dioxide once safely injected deep underground.

Economics

All new technologies face cost barriers against existing products. We examine ways to reduce cost through all parts of the carbon capture and storage chain.

Otway National Research Facility

An innovative, world-leading project is underway in south-western Victoria to demonstrate that carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a technically and environmentally safe way to make deep cuts into Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions.

The CO2CRC Otway Project is the country’s first demonstration of the deep geological storage or geosequestration of carbon dioxide (CO2), the most common greenhouse gas.
