Safety in carbon dioxide capture, transport and storage

1st September 2009

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

This study was contracted to the UK Governments main Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) which has become involved in a number of issues relating to safety in CCS projects.

The study has been specifically designed to examine the saftey issues which are likely to arise when preparing saftey cases and planning emergency procedures for CO2 capture and storage (CCS) projects.

The study found that the industry has sufficient experience in its totality, some of it very extensive, to conduct CCS operations safely, however, unless this information can consistently be made freely available and accessible where it is needed, the safety of CCS systems may be jeopardized.
