The Drive to Net Zero: The Key Role of Digital Technology in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)
July 26, 2022
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) will be an essential pathway as industries move to net zero. The ability to handle CO2 at both emission sources and directly from air, together with long-term storage in the subsurface, make CCS a crucial part of the energy transition. Join AspenTech experts to learn how innovations in digital technology support end-to-end CCS, with faster, widespread scale-up and improvements in economics and efficiency. Learn how you and your teams can: - Use rigorous modeling and economic analysis for rapid design and scale-up of carbon capture processes - Evaluate all current and new technology areas (such as liquid and physical solvent absorption, zeolites, membranes and other approaches) to find the most viable solution for your use cases - Leverage subsurface models to select depleted reservoirs and aquifers for CO2 storage that meet technical and economic criteria - Support optimized control and ongoing operator training to reduce risks and ensure proper CO2 storage You’ll see how chemical simulation models evaluate CCS approaches, such as converting CO2 to carbonates. Now is the time to adopt an end-to-end carbon capture and storage solution tailored to your needs. We encourage you to join the conversation by submitting questions when registering for the event.
Vallourec’s Role in Designing Safe CO2 Storage Projects
April 07, 2022
To deploy safe and sustainable CCS infrastructures, it is essential to test the equipments’ performance at specific operating conditions and to make sure materials will perform as expected for the whole project’s lifetime. In this webcast, Diana Rodriguez and Cécile Millet will present Vallourec’s initiatives aiming at reducing existing knowledge gaps, using our material selection best practices and cutting edge VAM® connection qualification for CCS applications.
Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage – Vallourec’s role in the safe deployment of CCUS infrastructures at scale
April 15, 2021
Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage (CCUS) is essential to deliver clean industrial growth and to achieve net-zero ambitions. Recently, CCUS has started to gain momentum thanks to policy support and governmental funding programs and several projects are expected to enter operation in the near future in Europe, Australia and the US. To ensure safe and cost-efficient deployment of such projects, it is key to de-risk the entire CO2 value chain and the required infrastructure. Companies need to be very selective and attentive to quality when selecting tubular products for transporting and storing captured CO2, due to the complex requirements of CCUS projects such as material exposure to low temperatures or corrosive environments. As an end-to-end supplier of high-performance tubular solutions, Vallourec is well positioned to help the industry deploy safe and sustainable CCUS infrastructures worldwide and leverage our built-in competence, adapting our material and product portfolio to meet these requirements and close the knowledge gaps.
