Helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in an urgent priority, but brings its own challenges.
Although Carbon Capture & Storage is becoming ever more accepted as a viable contributor to carbon reduction, those companies who are working to turn the theory into practice have come to recognize the technical and risk management challenges presented by large scale CCS. By applying technical rigour, and deploying the skills of our experienced major hazards, energy, power generation and engineering practitioners, MMI has established itself as an important contributor to a number of major CCS projects around the world.
Our experience in this area is rooted in the support we provided to what was the first CCS project in the UK to achieve full regulatory approval – Peterhead Hydrogen Power. Building on this, MMI has gone on to develop a range of major hazard management and technical safety services to CCS projects, underpinned by our belief that the long-term success of this technology depends on robust identification, quantification and management of the risks associated with large inventories of dense phase CO2 and hydrogen.
Through continued involvement in projects, and by participation in significant experimental and research initiatives, MMI has become a respected partner in CCS. Ensuring the technical and economic viability of CCS is very important; ensuring its safety is paramount.
