IMPACTS is a collaborative project co-funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme.
The idea of IMPACTS was to close identified knowledge gaps related to transport and storage of CO2-rich mixtures from various CO2 sources to enable realisation of safer and more cost-efficient solutions for CCS. IMPACTS was addressing the impact of impurities in captured CO2, from power plants and other CO2-intensive industries, on CO2 transport and storage. This encompassed fluid properties, phase behavior and chemical reactions in the infrastructure complex and at the storage sites. Results from IMPACTS will help to ensure safe and reliable design, construction and operation of CO2 pipelines and injection equipment, and safe long-term geological storage of CO2.
The project started on 1 January 2013 and has a duration of three years. It has 12 research performing partners and 5 funding partners.
The budget: is € 5 573 556, with contribution from EU at € 4 000 764.
