Research project: STEMM-CCS – Strategies for the Environmental Monitoring of Marine Carbon Capture and Storage

Currently Active: 

STEMM-CCS is a Horizon2020 funded EU project that will deliver new insights, guidelines for best practice, and tools for all phases of the CO2 storage cycle at offshore CCS sites.

The key objectives of the project are:

  • To produce new tools and techniques for environmental monitoring as well as CO2 emission monitoring, quantification and assessment
  • To generate new knowledge of the reservoir overburden by direct investigation of natural geological and manmade features
  • To deliver the first CCS demonstration project level implementation of an ecological baseline, incorporating geochemical and biological variability
  • To promote knowledge transfer to industrial and regulatory stakeholders and local and international communities
