CO2 Geological Pilots in Strategic Territories

CO2 Geological Pilots in Strategic Territories

The PilotSTRATEGY project is investigating geological CO2 storage sites in industrial regions of Southern and Eastern Europe to support development of large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS). We are focusing our research on deep saline aquifers–porous rock formations filled with brine several kilometres below ground – which promise a large capacity for storing CO2 captured from clusters of industry. Detailed studies will be carried out on deep saline aquifers in the Paris Basin in France, the Lusitanian Basin in Portugal and the Ebro Basin in Spain. We will also enhance our knowledge of CO2 storage options in West Macedonia in Greece and Upper Silesia in Poland.

PilotSTRATEGY will also engage with citizens and stakeholders and ensure that community perspectives are fully represented in the project.
