The report " Opportunities for CO2 storage pilot projects across Europe ", published in the framework of the Pan-European Coordination Action on CO2 Geological Storage (FP7 CGS Europe project), provides an overview of the many potential pilot projects across Europe.
CGS Europe is delighted to announce its Regional Awareness-Raising Workshop entitled 'CO2 Capture and Storage - Response to Climate Change', to be held on 25th October 2013 at Sofia in Bulgaria. This is actually the third of its kind workshop, organised under CGS Europe, which are following on from two previous workshops in the same series organised by the CO2NET EAST network. The workshop is targeted at EU Member States and Candidate Countries of the Balkan - Black Sea Region and Central & Eastern Europe.
The report "State of play on CO2geological storage in 28 European countries", published in the framework of the Pan-European Coordination Action on CO2 Geological Storage (FP7 CGS Europe project), reflects the current situation and achievements regarding geological storage of CO2 in the 28 European countries covered by CGS Europe.
The 8th CO2GeoNet Open Forum Press release is available in different languages.
Generally, there is a lack of information regarding the CO2 Geological Storage (CGS) in Greece. So, the aim of this workshop is to inform Greek people about the CGS technology clarifying various aspects relating to geological storage. It will be a good opportunity for knowledge dissemination to a broader audience in Greece.
The CGS Europe & CCSP joint workshop titled " CO2 Capture and Storage in the Baltic Sea Countries - Status and future cooperation opportunities " was held in the GTK head office's Sederholm hall in Espoo May 23. More than 50 participants all over the Baltic Sea area attended the one-day workshop. Keijo Nenonen, Regional Director of the GTK's Southern Finland Office opened the workshop.

CO 2 Capture and Storage in the Baltic Sea Countries
Status and future cooperation opportunities
This annual CO2GeoNet event will be organized in 2011 through CGS Europe. It will bring together CCS stakeholders and provide them with the latest results and progress in the field of CO2 geological storage.
Theme for 2013:
Are pilot-scale CO2 storage projects the way forward
for CCS in Europe?
The SiteChar FP7 project organize a Stakeholder Workshop on "Public awareness and acceptability of CCS technology".
Programme of Study: The CGS Europe Spring School on CO 2 Geological Storage shall provide the theoretical and practical knowledge on CCS based on recent international research and development work. Vital elements are:
CO 2 geological storage aspects
identifying, mapping and completing geological storage sites for the CO 2
aquifers, enhanced oil and gas recovery
multiple underground usage, storage without compromising other operations
Assessment of storage capacity
Safety precautions and consideration, information strategy
Numerical and Analytical Modelling approach
Monitoring and reporting guidelines
Public awareness and involvement to research and deployment
The thematic approach will be lectures, exercises, colloquia, study groups and a storage site visit. Most lectures will be covered by compendia, articles or other material that will be made available to the students during the course.
The CGS Europe Spring School on CO 2 Geological Storage will be open during one concentrated week - Thursday to Wednesday - April 18 th to 24 th 2013 with arrival on Wednesday April 17 th and departure Wednesday 24 th after noon. Key lecturers will be available throughout the entire week, and - as appropriate - take active part in discussions, and otherwise be available upon students' request.
Target group: The target group is young scientists, e.g. PhD students and post docs with background in geology, engineering, geotechnologies. Master students will be considered on free chairs.
The due date for submitting the application is by March 14 th 2013.
The second CGS Europe CCS-awareness-raising workshop "CO2 Capture and Storage - Regional Awareness Raising Workshop" took place in Ankara, Turkey, on 13 - 14 June 2012. It was organised at the Middle East Technical University Cultural and Convention Center. The workshop was the 4th event in the series related to CCS and CO2 storage in the context of climate change organised in Turkey since 2006. The last two events, a national seminar entitled "Climate change and CO2 emissions in Turkey, mitigation plans and need for CCS" in December 2011 and this workshop, are results of the CGS Europe project. The topics discussed included developments in Turkey, capture technologies, field examples of CO2 storage, as EOR, aquifer storage and monitoring.
Presentations from the conference availables now
CGS Europe, the "Pan-European Coordination Action on the Geological Storage of CO2" is delighted to announce its 2nd Regional Awareness-Raising Workshop on CO2 Capture and Storage . The aim of the workshop is to provide a basic overview and status of the CCS concept in Europe, the Middle East and in Turkey. It will bring together experts from leading research institutions and companies to share their knowledge with other stakeholders on various CCS issues.
CO2GeoNet and CGS Europe are participating in the 3rd International Geosciences and Environment Conference in Belgrade, Serbia
Organized and hosted by the Association of Geophysicists and Environmentalists of Serbia
CGS Europe is co-organizer of the third edition of "Promoting CCS in Romania"
The purpose of this CGS Europe Spring School on CO 2 Geological Storage is to offer an arena for knowledge-sharing and learning about near zero-emission power generation from a group of professionals, researchers and scientists involved in international CCS programmes.
Theme for 2012:
European CO 2 storage research:
major results and future perspectives
CGS Europe and CO2GeoNet were present at the SciTech Europe 2011 conference that took place in Brussels on November 24th.

Workshop topics to be covered will be most recent research on geological storage of CO2, the fate of the injected CO2 and monitoring.
Studying natural analogue sites is a unique opportunity to improve the understanding of physical, chemical, biological and microbial processes that may occur in a CO2 storage reservoir and the surrounding geological domain in the long term. Furthermore, potential impacts in case of leakage can be investigated and monitoring techniques may be tested.
