Carboncause and SINTEF Propel CCS Innovation Forward with the Landmark Greenpulse Project, Supporting European CO2 Reduction Targets 

Madrid, February 14, 2024  – In an ambitious move towards the European Union’s climate neutrality goals, Carboncause, alongside SINTEF, the globally acclaimed research institution in carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies, today announces their forward-looking plans in the Greenpulse Project. Set in Murcia, Spain, this project is at the vanguard of connecting CO2 sources from hard-to abate-industrial emitters with sustainable geological storage solutions, marking a significant leap in Spain and Europe’s CO2 reduction efforts.

The Greenpulse project leads with groundbreaking measuring, monitoring and verification (MMV) technology for secure CO2 removal, underpinned by an unwavering commitment to environmental integrity and water protection. We embody transparency in action, ensuring our climate efforts are equitable, sustainable, and actively inclusive, fostering resilience and prosperity in every community we touch.

SINTEF’s contributions to the planning of the Greenpulse Project have been pivotal, offering unparalleled expertise in several key areas.

Looking Ahead: Carboncause and SINTEF’s Continued Innovation

Building on these initiatives, Carboncause and SINTEF are committed to further innovation in CCS technology and site assessment methodologies. Our future collaboration includes:

  • Preliminary Static Model Development: Providing a foundational understanding of the site’s geological behavior.
  • Injection Scenarios and CO2 Plume Evolution Modelling: Offering insights into the effectiveness and environmental impact of CO2 storage strategies.
  • Environmental Monitoring Networks Initial Design: Showcasing a commitment to ecological sustainability.
