GLRPPR Sector Resource: MGSC/ISGS Carbon Sequestration Demonstration Project

Title:
MGSC/ISGS Carbon Sequestration Demonstration Project

Abstract:
This seminar was presented by Dr. Rob Finley, Director, ISGS Energy and Earth Resources Center, on April 15, 2009 at the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center in Champaign, IL.

Dr. Rob Finley discussed the progress on the Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium (MGSC) and Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS) Phase III large-scale sequestration demonstration project in Mt. Simon Sandstone in Decatur. The MGSC, ISGS, Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM), and Schlumberger Carbon Services are working together on this project which involves the capture and storage of carbon dioxide from ADM's ethanol plant in Decatur. The project is designed to confirm the ability of the Mt. Simon Sandstone to accept and store 1 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide over a period of 3 years.

The Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC) holds an annual series of seminars, usually one or two per month, presented by researchers, policy makers, and corporate executives on various topics related to Sustainability, Energy, and the Environment. This series is an opportunity to share scientific research with peers in a relaxed, informal environment. Seminars usually last about an hour and questions are welcome. The seminars will be from 12:00 to 1:00 PM CST in the Stephen J. Warner conference room at the ISTC headquarters. A link to a live video feed will be posted on the Sustainability Seminars page of the ISTC web site approximately 15 minutes before the start of each seminar. Windows Media Player 9 (or newer) as well as a broadband internet connection is required to view the feed. Those watching the webcast live will be able to submit questions via e-mail and have them asked at the end of the presentation. Video and slides from previous seminars are archived on the ISTC web site and are available within a few days of the seminar's completion.
