Environmental risks and performance assessment of carbon dioxide (CO2) leakage in marine ecosystems

J. Blackford, S. Widdicombe and D. Lowe,     Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UK

B. Chen,     Heriot Watt University, UK

Abstract:

This chapter describes the state of the current understanding of the potential for CO 2 leaked from carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) to impact the marine ecosystem. This is a complex problem as it requires an understanding of physical dispersion, the behaviour of plumes, marine chemistry, organism physiology and ecological relationships. Aside from predicting the likelihood of a leak event, the key issue is to understand the spread, persistence and impact of a hypothetical CCS derived leak and contrast ...
