Carbon Capture — Transport — Utilization — Storage

The International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control is a peer reviewed journal focusing primarily on Carbon Capture, Transport, Utilization & Storage. If your paper is not related to this area, it is not in scope for the Journal. The Journal invites research covering applied science and engineering advances in control of greenhouse gas emissions and reductions of their atmospheric concentrations through carbon dioxide capture, transport and storage. The Journal publishes results of experimental and pilot studies, technology demonstrations, process design and optimization, and techno-economic, policy, and life-cycle analyses relevant to applications in the power sector, major resource, manufacturing and production industries, and negative emissions technologies. Original research, review and comment papers are included.

The scope of the journal (whilst not exclusive to) includes:

CO2 capture

New research results relevant for large scale CO2 capture systems using chemical solvents, solid sorbents, chemical looping, calcium looping, membranes and membrane reactors and hybrid systems, PSA, cryogenics etc.

Advances in CO2 capture processes (post combustion, pre combustion, oxy combustion) for power plants, cement and steel plants, refineries, petrochemicals, and other large industries

Experimental results at pilot level from laboratory scale to demonstration, and relevant modelling work for scaling up

CO2 capture process simulation for energy penalty reductions. Dynamic modelling.

Cost analyses and cost reduction strategies

Environmental impacts/risk, safety and life-cycle assessment of capture facilities



CO2 Transport

Design and material/technical issues for CO2 transport systems

Economic analyses and systems level optimization of CO2 transport systems

Risk assessments and safety issues

Permitting and regulatory issues



CO2 Geological storage

Geological formation/storage capacity assessments

Matching emissions sources and storage opportunities

Site selection and characterization

Modelling the fate and effects of stored CO2

Integrity of the storage site, including caprocks and wells

Test injection research results

Risk assessments and management

Advanced weathering

Ocean storage



Alternative mitigation options/negative emission options

BioCCS and other bioenergy mitigation options

Negative emission accounting principles

Comparison of different GHG mitigation options such as energy efficiency, renewables and nuclear power and their potential to reduce CO2 emissions

Legal and regulatory developments/issues

Human/engineering capacity constraints

Public awareness/acceptance issues

Industry case studies on GHG mitigation technology implementation, learning by doing, knowledge transfer, stakeholder engagement and financing options



Integrated assessments, economic instruments that would induce commercial CCS deployment

Energy and economic modelling of the role that CCS will play in the broader portfolio of emissions mitigation options under different scenarios

Analyses of policy options (national and international) to reduce GHG emissions and how these impact the commercial deployment of CCS systems
