CO2PipeHaz: Quantitative Failure Consequence Hazard Assessment for Next Generation CO2 Pipelines

As part of the challenge to reduce the impact of global warming, pressurised pipeline are considered to be the most practical option for transporting captured CO2 for subsequent sequestration. This project brings together leading international experts to develop and test mathematical models for safety assessment of CO2 pipelines. The results are expected to provide the tools for determining the minimum safe distances to populated areas and allow emergency response planning in the unlikely event of pipeline failure.

This project is funded under 7th FWP (Seventh Framework Programme)
