WP5 leader, WP4 co-leader
IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN) is a major research and training player in the fields of energy, transport and the environment. It is heavily involved in the fields of CCS and CCUS and is strongly committed to the development of capture, transport and CO2 storage technologies.
IFPEN leads several of the European Union’s FP6 and FP7 projects – CASTOR, INCA-CO2 COACH and CESAR – and is also a key partner in other projects, including CACHET, ENCAP, DYNAMIS, CAPRICE, ECCO, COCATE, CO2ReMoVe, CO2GeoNet and GeoCapacity. It is involved in industrial CCS demo projects with Petrobras and TOTAL.
It is developing innovative industrial processes for capturing CO2, which are less expensive and consume less energy, and tools for managing CO2 geological storage. It is also active in the field of storage site selection and characterisation, optimisation of CO2 injection in underground reservoirs, long-term storage monitoring and the re-use of CO2.
