CO2 fluid properties, fluid flow, and flow measurement
Carbon Capture Usage and Storage (CCUS) is an important emissions reduction technology designed to capture CO2 from fuel combustion, its transportation, and either its re-use or permanent storage deep underground.
Through the Climate Change Act, the UK is committed to drastically reducing its emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, achieving net zero emissions by 2050. This will require substantial changes to the ways in which energy is generated, stored, transported and consumed.
The Committee on Climate Change say that Carbon Capture Usage & Storage will be imperative in the journey to offsetting ‘difficult to cut emissions’ and achieving the goal of decarbonisation.
Crucial to the implementation of large-scale CCUS is the method by which it will be monetised, with different approaches being considered, from taxation through to credit-based systems. Whichever mechanism prevails, monetisation requires accurately knowing how much carbon dioxide has been sequestered- much the same as custody transfer metering in the oil and gas industry today.
To address these technology and measurement challenges, we provide expertise in all aspects of CO2 fluid properties, fluid flow, and flow measurement.
With CCUS, there are many potential measurement challenges expected, due to both the physical properties of carbon dioxide (CO2), and the processes involved in CCUS projects. TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory is the UK’s Designated Institute for flow and density measurement standards, funded by BEIS, and as such it provides the UK’s measurement traceability that underpins all flow and density measurements, and transactions based upon these.
