Emerging energy technologies require innovative storage and recovery systems. CO2 geo-sequestration in aquifers and hydrocarbon reservoirs is a promising carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) method.
The emerging hydrogen economy also provides an opportunity for large-scale hydrogen energy storage in geological formations. Other storage and recovery technologies associated with energy include the safe disposal of waste related to extractive industries.
Applications include CO2 chemical modification to enhance storage, co-optimization of hydrocarbon recovery and CO2 sequestration, assessment of long-term subsurface storage, subsurface hydrogen gas storage, and waste storage.
