Description

The CO2StoP project created a database of locations and capacities of underground geological formations in Europe that could be used to store CO 2. It also created a tool to calculate the fraction of the theoretical storage capacity that can be accessed using all currently available technologies regardless of cost, producing estimates very similar to the Technically Accessible CO 2 Storage Resource (TASR) used by the US Geological Survey. This study summarises the results of the CO2Stop project.
