Full Lifecycle Storage Solutions

Our flexible business models for saline storage projects include service provider, partner and a fully outsourced ownership solution. We start by evaluating all aspects of project feasibility, risk and cost. With our unique site design process and deep understanding of the evolving regulatory environment we are able to expedite class VI and other permitting steps. Sites are then constructed and operated through to closure including all monitoring and filing requirements along the way. In addition, we can handle the monetization of 45Q tax credits along with capital needs and other elements of the business case.

History and Experience

Battelle's Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) services have played a major role in key U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) initiatives and projects since the mid-1990s. Early government program involvement has steadily progressed into a commercial program covering all facets of the CO2 storage lifecycle.

Battelle collectively has managed and safely executed more than 100 Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) projects. Our projects, while primarily throughout all regions of North America, also include international collaborative efforts and have incorporated unique public-private partnerships.
