ISGS continues studying CO2 sequestration near Terre Haute, Indiana
ISGS is participating in a project funded by the Department of Energy's Coal FIRST (Flexible, Innovative, Resilient, Small, Transformative) initiative that will study the potential redevelopment of the Wabash Valley Resources coal gasification site in West Terre Haute, Indiana.
The project, led by Wabash Valley Resources, seeks to convert the existing plant so it can burn biomass as well as coal while producing hydrogen that can be used to generate electricity or sold as a product. This project will capture CO2 for storage in nearby deep saline reservoirs and aims to achieve net-negative carbon emissions by sequestering more carbon than it produces. This connects to an ongoing CarbonSAFE project that ISGS is carrying out at the Wabash Valley Resources site, studying the feasibility of developing commercial-scale CO2 storage at the location.
This project is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Fossil Energy, National Energy Technology Laboratory.
