Presentation of the FReSMe and STEPWISE initiatives at CLUSTER projects consortium meeting in Berlin (27th April 2017)

The CLUSTER project is a German-based consortium looking at the impacts of impurities in CO2 streams captured from different emitters in a regional cluster on transport, injection and storage. The key question they seek to answer being: How pure do CO2 streams have to be for accessing larger CO2 pipeline networks and which aspects other than CO2 stream composition need to be considered to ensure safe transport, injection and storage operation with technically and economically acceptable efforts? To this end the FReSMe project will be presenting itself at their workshop on the 27th April 2017. FReSMe will bring the CLUSTER project up-to-date with some of the latest expectations of technology development for CO2 capture, and the FReSMe project will learn of the latest expectations from the transport, injection and storage side for the captured CO2.
