TCCS-12: A Record-Breaking CCS Conference

From 19-21 June, the global CCS community gathered in Trondheim for the twelfth Trondheim CCS conference (TCCS-12). This was a record-breaking conference for TCCS in many ways, with the largest number of participants attended, nationalities represented, and abstracts submitted. While the conference included topics from the entire CCS value chain, the main messages conveyed were the necessity of international collaboration, increased R&D activity, and strong government policies.

Improved engineering method for the safe design of CO₂ pipelines

CO₂ capture and storage (CCS) is a promising solution for reducing CO₂ emissions and mitigating climate change. However, before CCS can be widely deployed, a large network of high-pressure transport pipelines must be established to transport the captured CO₂ to storage sites. An essential aspect of pipeline design is avoid running ductile fracture (RDF), which is when a pipeline defect develops into a fracture under pressure forces from the escaping fluid.
