West Coast Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership, Phase II
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
~The proposed research will use public data bases to develop additional data on CO2 sources. It will enhance the methodology for determining and costing logical pathways for transporting CO2 to appropriate geological sinks. Theoretical locations will be evaluated for new power plants considering location-specific CCs costs as well as traditional factors for continental WESTCARB states. Opportunities will be identified for regional CCS cost reduction through emerging CO2 capture technologies. Regional carbon supply curves will be update. The proposed research will enable validation of the ability to inject CO2 and secure storage in the vast saline reservoirs underlying northern Arizona will be validated in a field pilot test. Finally, a study will be carried out of how new plants with CCS would dispatch into the grid depending on where they are sited.
