"Geological Storage of CO2 from Coal-Fired Plants"

Jim Rawson
GE Global Research

Abstract
The concept of geological storage of CO2 (a.k.a. sequestration) from coal-fired plants will be reviewed. The various options for CO2 storage will be compared and contrasted. These options consist of using CO2 for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and storage of CO2 in either saline aquifers or coal beds. Both the technical challenges and the potential benefits of each option will be summarized.
