The GEODISC Project

Brief description:

The A$12 million GEODISC Project ran from 1999 until 2003. It was carried out within the Australian Petroleum Cooperative Research Centre (APCRC) and examined over 100 potential geological storage sites. It identified an ultimate storage capacity of more than 1600 years of Australia’s total current emissions. It also developed a methodology for comparing the suitability of potential sites, taking into account a range of factors such as storage volume, security and their proximity to large CO2 emitting sources.
