CO2 is one of the hazardous greenhouse gases causing significant changes to the environment. The sequestering of CO2 in a suitable geological media can be a feasible method to avoid the negative effects of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. A numerical model was developed regarding CO2 sequestration in a deep saline aquifer. A compositional numerical model using CMG software (GEM) was employed to study the ability of the selected aquifer to accept and retain large quantities of CO2 injected in a supercritical state for long periods of time (up to 260 years).

Başbuğ, Başar; Gümrah, Fevzi; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2005)
CO2 is one of the hazardous greenhouse gases causing significant changes in the environment. The sequestering CO2 in a suitable geological medium can be a feasible method to avoid the negative effects of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere. CO2 sequestration is the capture of, separation, and long-term storage of CO2 in underground geological environments. A case study was simulated regarding the CO2 sequestration in a deep saline aquifer. The compositional numerical model (GEM) of the CMG software was used to ...
Investigation of Turkey's carbon dioxide problem by numerical modeling
Can, Ali; Tokdemir, Turgut; Department of Engineering Sciences (2006)
CO2 emission is very important, because it is responsible for about 60% of the "Greenhouse Effect". The major objectives of this study were to prepare a CO2 emission inventory of Turkey based on districts and provinces by using the fuel consumption data with respect to its sources, to find the CO2 uptake rate of forests in Turkey based on provinces and districts, and to estimate the ground level concentration of CO2 across Turkey using U.S. EPA's ISCLT3 model for the preparation of ground level concentratio...
Simulating CO2 sequestration in a depleted gas reservoir
Özkılıç, Öke İsmet; Gümrah, Fevzi; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2005)
Carbon dioxide is one of the greenhouse gases which have strong impacts on the environment and its amount in the atmosphere is far beyond to be ignored. Carbon dioxide levels are projected to be reduced by sequestering it directly to the underground. High amounts of carbon dioxide can be safely stored in underground media for very long time periods. Storage in depleted gas reservoirs provides an option for sequestering carbon dioxide. In 2002, production of Kuzey Marmara gas reservoir has been stopped due t...
Modification of pebax and zif-8/pebax membranes by additional solvent treatment to improve co2/n2 separation performance

Capturing carbon dioxide is currently one of the most attractive research areas due to the serious problems that CO2 emission creates for the environment. The main aim of this work is to utilize cheap and environmentally friendly methods with simple synthesizing systems to enhance the separation performance of CO2 from N2 using PEBAX 1657 membranes. Thus, in this study, solvent modification and double-layer methods were used to improve the permeability of carbon dioxide in pure PEBAX 1657 and ZIF-8/PEB...
CO2 hydrogenation to methanol over supported copper and gallium based catalysts at the atmospheric pressure
Osmanağa, Sezer; İpek Torun, Bahar; Önal, Işık; Department of Chemical Engineering (2022-8)
The continuous increase of the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere has been negatively impacting the environment, due to its contribution in the global warming. Hence, it is necessary for the current CO2 valorization techniques to advance in order to make use of CO2. A possible technique is the CO2 hydrogenation to methanol and DME. The process of CO2 hydrogenation to methanol has been taking place in industry for about a century. However, due to the thermodynamic limitation imposed by the reaction stoichio...
