Objectives This project will help support the future design, operation and roll-out of cost effective carbon capture and storage (CCS) systems in the UK. It will create a modelling tool-kit capable of simulating the operation of all aspects of the CCS chain from capture and transport to storage and maintenance. The CCS System Modelling Tool-kit will be used to support the initial conceptual design and eventual detailed design and operation of CCS systems by helping to identify and understand the operational issues in the system such as the effect of a power station starting up, shutting down or increasing generation in response to power demands. It will benefit owners or developers of power stations who need to know the effect of CCS on their operations, future transport and storage operators, technology suppliers who will want to understand future requirements for their equipment and policy makers keen to understand issues around the overall CCS operation.
Abstract A scoping study to identify the requirements for the project subsequently procured by the ETI to develop a CCS system modelling toolkit
