The CarbonNet Project

Organisation: Department of Primary Industries, Victoria
The CarbonNet Project in Australia is investigating the potential for establishing a world class, large-scale, multi-user carbon capture and storage (CCS) network. The network could integrate multiple carbon dioxide (CO2) capture projects in the State of Victoria’s Latrobe Valley, transporting CO2 via a common-use pipeline and injecting it deep into offshore underground storage sites in Victoria’s Gippsland region. The establishment of a successful CCS network would support the development of new industries in Victoria. Positioning Victoria as a hub for CCS provides a substantial opportunity for new jobs and to boost skills.
