Feasibility of Large-Scale Ocean CO2 Sequestration

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The project accomplishments in 2005 have been exceptional, and have seen radical new techniques successfully devised and implemented. At the outset the goal set was to create a system dubbed FOCE--Free Ocean CO{sub 2} Enrichment--for investigating the impact of rapidly growing ocean CO{sub 2} levels from passive absorption by the surface ocean. A paper describing progress in this area is included with this report. On June 29, 2005 the P.I. presented a seminar on this work at NETL, and after discussion with Program Officers it was suggested that a return to the original project focus of investigating direct disposal techniques, ... continued below

Description

The project accomplishments in 2005 have been exceptional, and have seen radical new techniques successfully devised and implemented. At the outset the goal set was to create a system dubbed FOCE--Free Ocean CO{sub 2} Enrichment--for investigating the impact of rapidly growing ocean CO{sub 2} levels from passive absorption by the surface ocean. A paper describing progress in this area is included with this report. On June 29, 2005 the P.I. presented a seminar on this work at NETL, and after discussion with Program Officers it was suggested that a return to the original project focus of investigating direct disposal techniques, rather than passive disposal effects, should be undertaken. This suggestion was rapidly acted upon, and in November 2005 a major field breakthrough was accomplished in collaboration with colleagues from NETL, MIT, and AIST (Japan). In this effort the real time three-dimensional acoustic detection of a freely released small-scale CO{sub 2} plume was accomplished. In addition we have successfully field tested the theoretical model of Zeebe and Wolf-Gladrow for CO{sub 2} system kinetics at depth, thus leading to more accurate prediction of the local pH perturbations of a CO{sub 2} plume.
