Operation of Complex CO2 Transportation and Storage Networks.
Abstract: Several companies have estimated that the carbon capture business could be soon generating more than $4 trillion dollars of revenue per year. Many of the proposed networks will collect CO2 from a wide variety of emitters and for a given network the number of emitters may be large i.e., greater than 30. Also, the CO2 rich mixture will be transported across the country at distances more than 1000 miles to be stored in more economical/stable reservoirs. For this reason, the networks will be complex since many companies will be responsible for various aspect of the process. As a result, the operation/control will be complex, and this presentation will discuss various issues and possible solutions.
