There is a risk associated with carbon capture and storage chain. This is addressed by a nongovernmental organization called the International Performance Assessment Centre for geological storage of carbon dioxide. It is also called as IPAC-Co2 which was established in the year 2009. This organization is funded by the Canadian government and government of Saskatchewan. To know more about IPAC-Co2, you can read the article below. This environmental organization along with the Canadian Standards Association came up with a standard for the geologic storage of Co2. The rules are developed for Canada and the United States. Experts are reviewing the standards framed by the IPAC-Co2, NGO's and government regulators from Canada and United States. Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) is a process which i...

The emission and storage of Co2 is a most significant risk to the environment, and it can result in various issues. There are certain comfort levels for the discharge of Co2 gas in the atmosphere. The indoor air quality is significantly affected by the emission of Co2 gas. There are several other factors which affect the quality of the air indoors. People exhale co2, and thus the levels of the gas would be predictable indoors. The concentration of Co2 indoors would represent the quality of air. The article below lists some of the permitted Co2 levels. The permitted Co2 levels in a fresh supply of air are correlated. It is said that for 15cfm ventilation rate the authorized Co2 level is 1000 ppm and for 20cfm ventilation rate, the permitted Co2 level 800ppm. The normal Co2 levels at outdo...

It is said that the increase in the carbon dioxide emission would be a significant threat to the environment as it can cause drastic climatic changes. The provincial government questioned the carbon capture projects that were undertaken in the University of Regina. IPAC a nongovernmental organization which works on formulating standards on Co2 capture and its geological storage. The role of IPAC in regulating the CCS process is noteworthy, and it offered good results. The following article gives a clear overview of how Co2 capture and storage affects the environment and the climatic conditions. CCS is a process where the Co2 gas is stored and injected in various geological structures of oil reservoirs, saline aquifers located underground, coalbeds, etc. The CCS process mainly aims in the...
