Thin Ice

CO2MAN Research Project, Ketzin, Germany

Daniel and Fabian both work on the first on-shore CO2 capture and storage project in Europe at Ketzin, 40 km west of Berlin. Injection and monitoring began in 2008 and by 2010 30,000 tonnes had been safely injected into a domed 70-m-thick sandstone 600 m below the surface. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, involves 6 German research institutes and 7 industry partners.
