The project

The IMPACTS project structure is developed to support the proposed strategy and to ensure achieving the project objectives. IMPACTS comprises three R&D subprojects (SP1–SP3) and 11 subordinated work packages (WP’s). In addition, IMPACTS includes a sub project dedicated to overall project co-ordination, operational management including legal, financial and administrative issues, and dissemination (SP4).

This IMPACTS objectives will be achieved by following the IMPACTS project concept:

  1. Quantifying the fundamental properties and behaviour of relevant CO2 mixtures (SP1)
  2. Revealing the impacts of relevant impurities in the CO2 stream on the design and operation of the transport and storage infrastructure considering integrity of the whole chain (SP2)
  3. Providing recommendations for optimized CO2 quality (SP3)
  4. Disseminating the results and making a plan for exploitation (SP4, SP3)
