Carbon Capture and Storage: Current Perspectives, Re-use Activities, and Future Prospects in Turkey

2015-01-01
The continuous rising of anthropogenic emission into the atmosphere as a consequence of industrial growth is becoming uncontrollable, which causes heating up of the atmosphere and changes in global climate. The complexity in the structure of geological formations and the processes involved in this method necessitates the use of revealing the potential problems, determining feasibility, storage capacity, and life span credibility. The development and commercialization of carbon dioxide capture and storage technology would have positive impacts in certain regions of Turkey. Many domestic industries utilize CO2-intensive processes in their activities and many regions throughout the country have storage potential in close proximity to the sources. Being independent from the location carbon capture technology (CCT) can be applicable to all the existing and new coal, natural gas, fuel oil, and biomass-fueled power plants in Turkey.

Carbon dioxide sequestration and enhanced oil recovery co-optimization
Akhundov, Nuri; Sınayuç, Çağlar; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2021-9)
The worldwide growth of industry leads to continuous rise of anthropogenic emission amount into the atmosphere, which causes greenhouse effect all over the world, that is heating up the atmosphere and changing the global climate. On the other hand, carbon dioxide injection into oil reservoirs for the purpose of enhancement of oil recovery (CO2-EOR) has been commercially used for nearly 50 years. The operations in petroleum sector are being carried out in a way to maximize the recovered oil while keeping the...
Modelling of carbon sink capacity of the Black Sea
Cengiz, Yelis; Yılmaz, Ayşen; Yücel, İsmail; Department of Earth System Science (2016)
The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is constantly increasing due to human activities and results in global warming. Since Industrial Revolution 30 and 25 percentages of the anthropogenic atmospheric carbon dioxide are taken up by the forests and by the oceans respectively. Carbon dioxide is rising faster than biosphere can tolerate and the rest of the carbon dioxide which can not be hold, continues to accumulate and causes further heating of the atmosphere. The carbon sink capacity of the ...
Simulating oil recovery during CO2 sequestration into a mature oil reservoir
Pamukçu, Yusuf Ziya; Gümrah, Fevzi; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2006)
The continuous rising of anthropogenic emission into the atmosphere as a consequence of industrial growth is becoming uncontrollable, which causes heating up the atmosphere and changes in global climate. Therefore, CO2 emission becomes a big problem and key issue in environmental concerns. There are several options discussed for reducing the amount of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere. CO2 sequestration is one of these options, which involves the capture of CO2 from hydrocarbon emission sources, e.g. power pl...
Greenhouse gas emissions from global cities under SSP/RCP scenarios, 1990 to 2100
Gurney, Kevin R.; Kılkış, Şiir; Seto, Karen C.; Lwasa, Shuaib; Moran, Daniel; Riahi, Keywan; Keller, Meredith; Rayner, Peter; Luqman, Muhammed (2022-03-01)
Projections of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are critical to enable a better understanding and anticipation of future climate change under different socio-economic conditions and mitigation strategies. The climate projections and scenarios assessed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, following the Shared Socioeconomic Pathway (SSP)-Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) framework, have provided a rich understanding of the constraints and opportunities for policy action. However, the curre...
Geochemical characterization of geothermal systems in Turkey as natural analogues for geological storage of Co2/
Elidemir, Sanem; Güleç, Nilgün Türkan; Department of Geological Engineering (2014)
To mitigate the unfavourable effect of CO2 emission on global warming and climate change, geological storage of CO2 is currently regarded to be one of the major strategies. Deep saline formations constitute one of the alternative reservoirs for hosting the injected CO2 and the information about the behaviour of these reservoirs is provided via the studies of natural analogues. This thesis is concerned with the geothermal systems of Turkey as natural analogues for CO2 storage sites and the evaluation of thei...
