The aim of the BCF-2023 project is to prepare, arrange and report the BASRECCS regional conference “BCF Baltic Carbon Forum 2023” which will be held in October. The BCF is part of BASRECCS’ long-term strategy to foster full-scale development of the climate change mitigation technologies carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) in the Baltic Sea Region. The aim is to enable interested and engaged stakeholders to meet, discuss, share knowledge and experiences, and develop projects. The BCF will invite network members and other relevant experts, stakeholders and interested persons to be a speakers of BCF 2023.

Instructor: Dr. Alla Shogenova and Dr. Auli Niemi

Course Content

A) Developments in strategic, political and regulatory issues

  • Strategic (Climate strategies and revenue systems)
  • Political and Regulatory (National strategies and regulations)
  • Geological 1: Negative and positive lessons

B) Site characterization and modeling

The lecture will discuss (i) recent findings from one of the few European CO2 pilot injections (Heletz, Israel) as well as (ii) addresses the issue dynamic modeling of CO2 storage with examples from the Baltic Sea Region.

Coffee break:  15 min

C) Tecno-economic aspects of CCUS clusters and hubs

  • Economic (Cost of technologies)
  • CCUS clusters and hubs: Carbon Neutral Scenario for the Baltic States
  • Conclusions and integration of the learned lessons
