西オーストラリア州 温室効果ガスの回収・貯留: 二つのプロジェクトの物語
西オーストラリア州 温室効果ガスの回収・貯留: 二つのプロジェクトの物語

6th June 2013

Organisation(s): Australian Government, Department of Mines and Petroleum, Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism, Western Australia

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Health, safety and environment, Use and storage (CCUS)

西オーストラリア州では二つのCCSプロジェクトが計画されている。両プロジェクトとも、豪州連邦政府及び西オーストラリア州政府の共同パートナーシップによる支援を受けている。一方のプロジェクトは液化天然ガス(LNG: Liquefied Natural Gas)プラントから発生するCO2を貯留し、もう一方は石炭を燃焼する産業及び石炭火力発電によって生じるCO2を貯留する。両者が違う点は、社会及び環境への影響並びに貯留層の地質である。一方は動物相を保護する価値が高く、人の住んでいない場所に立地しており、他方は人口の多い農業地域である。また、一方には従来型の貯留用シールがあり、他方は複数のトラップメカニズムを採用している。両プロジェクトを合わせると、西オーストラリア州のCO2排出量の11%を貯留する容量がある。

本書ではこれらの最先端のプロジェクトの相違点及び共通点を検証する。

Western Australia greenhouse gas capture and storage: a tale of two projects
Western Australia greenhouse gas capture and storage: a tale of two projects

31st May 2012

Organisation(s): Australian Government, Department of Mines and Petroleum, Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism, Western Australia

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Health, safety and environment, Use and storage (CCUS)

This report, developed by the Western Australian and Australian Government, delves into the two current CCS projects being developed in Western Australia – the South West Hub and the Gorgon LNG Project. The similarities and differences between the Projects are discussed, including their social and environmental impact, and reservoir geology.

Together these projects have the potential to store 11 per cent of Western Australia’s CO2 emissions.

Advanced biofuels study. Strategic directions for Australia: summary report
Advanced biofuels study. Strategic directions for Australia: summary report

14th December 2011

Organisation(s): Australian Government, Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism, L.E.K. Consulting

Topic(s): Renewables

This report summarises findings of the Advanced Biofuels Study, identifies priority pathways for the industry and recommends the role Government should undertake in order to facilitate the establishment of an advanced biofuels (ABF) industry. More detailed research and analysis of ABF technologies, feedstock options and economics is contained in an Appendix, which should be read in conjunction with this report.

The report sits in the context of an industry that is still in an early stage of development, with activity to date centred on ethanol and biodiesel production.

Advanced biofuels are defined as liquid fuels derived from sustainable sources of organic matter that do not typically compete with food production, such as wood residues, certain oilseeds, and algae.

Advanced biofuels study: strategic directions for Australia. Appendix
Advanced biofuels study: strategic directions for Australia. Appendix

14th December 2011

Organisation(s): Australian Government, Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism, L.E.K. Consulting

Topic(s): Renewables

The Advanced Biofuels Study was commissioned by the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism, funded through the Australian Centre for Renewable Energy (ACRE), to inform the priorities of the Australian Biofuels Research Institute (ABRI). The Study will also inform the development of the Government’s Alternative Transport Fuels Strategy.

This Appendix contains a summary of detailed research and analysis from the Advanced Biofuels Study, and covers advanced biofuel (ABF) technologies, feedstock options and economics.

This Appendix is intended to be read in conjunction with a Summary Report which summarises findings from the Advanced Biofuels Study, identifies priority pathways for the industry and recommends the role Government should undertake in order to facilitate the establishment of an ABF industry.

Chapter two of the Appendix describes the existing biofuels landscape in Australia, including the state of the current biofuels industry and government policies. International policies are also explored, as are Australia’s comparative ABF advantages.

Chapter three identifies sectors in the Australian economy that have the greatest need and ability to switch to ABF, and provides information on the fuel types that will be required.

Chapter four identifies advanced biomass sources and assesses their potential as feedstock for an advanced biofuels industry of scale in Australia.

Chapter five describes the technologies for transforming biomass into a refined fuel, prioritising feedstock and technology combinations into a set of most attractive ABF pathways for Australia.

Chapter six presents the economics of these pathways in more detail, discussing potential cost competitiveness at commercial deployment and further in the future.

In this Study, advanced biofuels are defined as liquid fuels derived from sustainable sources of organic matter that do not typically compete with food production, such as wood residues, certain oilseeds, and algae.

National carbon mapping and infrastructure plan – Australia : full report
National carbon mapping and infrastructure plan – Australia : full report

1st September 2009

Organisation(s): Australian Government, Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Use and storage (CCUS)

The Carbon Storage Taskforce developed this Plan under the National Low Emissions Coal Initiative. This Plan describes the risks and opportunities presented by transport and storage of carbon dioxide, acting as Australia’s roadmap to prioritising the development of suitable storage sites and the necessary pipeline infrastructure.

Deployment of carbon dioxide (CO2) transport and storage in Australia is technically viable and, under appropriate management regimes, safe. However, current geological and engineering activities must be accelerated and maintained over the next decade if the nation is to be in a position to capture the opportunity for commercial deployment beyond 2020.
