The Water Working Group (WWG) is a team of experts from government, academia, and industry comprising members of NETL’s Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships (RCSPs). Our mission is to address stakeholder concerns regarding emerging carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology and potential interactions with local and regional water resources.
Members of the WWG represent different regions of North America, each with its own unique set of challenges surrounding water resources and CCS. We are evaluating the opportunities and challenges as various CO2 capture and storage strategies are assessed. The RCSP WWG is working to find technically and economically feasible answers to questions such as:
