Climate change, requiring development and deployment of carbon capture and storage technology (CCS), is one of the most important challenges in this century. Unless our understanding of CO2 subsurface behaviour is strongly improved, international regulations for annual worldwide deposits of 15-20 Gt CO2/y may never come into operation.
The SUCCESS centre addresses several important areas for CO2 storage in the subsurface: storage performance, sealing properties, injection, monitoring and consequences for the marine environment. The “CO2-School” is in addition a major educational program.
The centre will as far as possible try to bridge gaps from details to concepts and applications, from small to large scale, and to transfer data and knowledge between many related fields.
