CCS essential to achieve Queensland’s new climate goals, says Glencore

Diversified natural resources group Glencore says carbon capture and storage (CCS) should be part of a suite of low-emissions technologies Queensland should deploy if it is to achieve its emissions reduction goals.

Glencore notes that Queensland has increased its emissions reduction target of 75% below 2005 levels by 2035.

The group says its CTSCo project in the Surat Basin is the most advanced onshore CCS project in Queensland and is currently awaiting an approval decision for its environmental-impact statement from the Department of Environment and Science.

“CCS in the Surat Basin has the potential to materially reduce carbon emissions from hard to abate sectors, while supporting the state’s hydrogen industry and helping reduce the costs of emissions reduction for all Queenslanders,” says CTSCo GM Darren Greer.

The CTSCo project is seeking approval for injection testing of about 100 000 t/y of carbon dioxide (CO2) at depths of 2.3 km in the Surat Basin in Queensland for three years.

"Our scientific data shows this CO2 can be stored safely and securely, with no adverse impacts on any local or regional agricultural producers," the company notes.
