Abstract

This article introduces the pioneering CO2 capture and geological storage (CCS) technology development projects in Finland and their geological applications at the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) in collaboration with Finnish CCS technology research and development partners and administrative authorities. The CCS projects have been funded by the Finnish CO2 producing and CCS technologies developing industry, the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (Tekes) and GTK. In this paper, special emphasis is placed on presenting research and development results and proposals for CCS in Finnish conditions that have been produced during recent collaboration between VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and GTK.
