Pace CCS, DeepC Store Submit CO2 Shipping Supply Specification To Australian Government - Carbon Herald

Perth-based carbon capture and storage (CCS) project developer and operator deepC Store (dCS) has submitted the carbon dioxide (CO₂) supply specification for its floating CCS hub project, CStore1, developed in partnership with carbon capture engineering specialist Pace CCS, the latter said in a statement.

The specification, which is a key requirement to allow development of project infrastructure, was submitted to the Australian Commonwealth Government and released publicly with the intention to help inform the emerging CCS industry as well as more generally support global progress towards a net-zero future.

Through its projects, dCs enables import of waste CO₂ from large industrial players in Japan, which is then shipped to Australia and permanently stored in deep offshore reservoirs.

According to Daein Cha, Director of dCS, the CO₂ supply specification “ensures that no risk to downstream material integrity or other HSE risks are introduced to our CCS projects, and that we maximize flexibility such that cost of CO₂ capture by the CO₂ suppliers is minimized.”

Matt Healey, Managing Director of Pace CCS, expressed hope that the information from the specification would be useful to both regulators and other projects looking to find this balance.

The submission also received praise from Michael Malavazos, Director of Engineering Operations at the Department for Energy and Mining in South Australia, for “setting an international benchmark for CO₂ stream composition for the purpose of ensuring safe and reliable transportation and injection.”

The potential CO₂ supply sources that have been considered for the CStore1 hub project include iron and steel furnaces, traditional fossil fuel power plants, biomass power plants and waste incinerators, refinery emissions, cement plants and kilns, lime production, ammonia production, and direct air capture (DAC).
