The Drive to Net Zero: The Key Role of Digital Technology in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)

July 26, 2022
AspenTech
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) will be an essential pathway as industries move to net zero. The ability to handle CO2 at both emission sources and directly from air, together with long-term storage in the subsurface, make CCS a crucial part of the energy transition. Join AspenTech experts to learn how innovations in digital technology support end-to-end CCS, with faster, widespread scale-up and improvements in economics and efficiency. Learn how you and your teams can: - Use rigorous modeling and economic analysis for rapid design and scale-up of carbon capture processes - Evaluate all current and new technology areas (such as liquid and physical solvent absorption, zeolites, membranes and other approaches) to find the most viable solution for your use cases - Leverage subsurface models to select depleted reservoirs and aquifers for CO2 storage that meet technical and economic criteria - Support optimized control and ongoing operator training to reduce risks and ensure proper CO2 storage You’ll see how chemical simulation models evaluate CCS approaches, such as converting CO2 to carbonates. Now is the time to adopt an end-to-end carbon capture and storage solution tailored to your needs. We encourage you to join the conversation by submitting questions when registering for the event.
