CO2 post-injection monitoring and post-closure phase at the Ketzin pilot site

Since 2004, research on the storage of CO2 in a deep saline aquifer is being conducted at the Ketzin pilot site in Brandenburg. The CO2 injection was successfully carried out between June 2008 and August 2013 and accompanied by one of the world's most extensive monitoring programs. The COMPLETE project continues the previous projects (e.g. CO2SINK and CO2MAN) with further research in Ketzin.

International research partnership of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres (Germany) and the University of Alberta (Canada) to investigate key processes and technologies in various thematic field.


Compilation of results produced by research  projects in the funding scheme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN (German Ministry of Education and Research) with the topic sustainable geological CO2 storage to underpin the German law for CO2-storage.


The impact of the quality of CO2 on transport and storage behavior

The objective of the EU funded project IMPACTS is to develop a sound and comprehensive CO2 quality knowledge base.


The planned increase of solar and aeolic within the german energy mix is confronted with large fluctuations in electricity production due to fluctuating saisonal and metereological conditions. A boost of electricity networks' capacity, as well as of the technology for conversion and storage of excess electricity is therefore extremely important. Given the current german energy mix, which is mainly sustained by electrification of fossil fuels and controlled nuclear fission, the storage of large amounts of energy has not been a relevant issue.
