Announced Projects to date
Bayou Bend CCS
In a joint venture with Talos Energy and Chevron, Carbonvert is developing Bayou Bend, a 10 Mtpa CO2 capture, transport and storage hub in southeast Texas. As the first-of-its-kind offshore CCS program in the US, Bayou Bend will facilitate the sequestration of carbon dioxide from industrial facilities in Port Arthur and the surrounding region.
The remote offshore location minimizes the risk of freshwater contamination, reducing liability for harm and ensuring the safety of people, property and wildlife.
A Major Impact:
Bayou Bend is strategically positioned to affect environmental change, with more than 35 Mtpa of CO2 emissions in the Port Arthur region and an overall anticipated storage capacity of 600 million metric tons.
Port Arthur, TX
- - 2025 first injection target
- - 40,000 acres of Offshore Space
- - 8,000 ft below ground micene saline formations for storage
Nuclear Direct Air Capture with Carbon Storage Pilot
Carbonvert, along with Battelle, Southern Company, Sargent & Lundy and the University of Alabama, are collaborating on an exploratory study for the direct air capture and storage of CO2 emissions from a nuclear power plant. The project was awarded $2.5 million from the US Department of Energy in May 2022 and will begin capture and storage in late 2022.
Learning for Future Projects:
In addition to researching the economic and engineering scalability of these programs, this project will include analyses on environmental safety and health, environmental justice, economic revitalization and jobs and a cradle-to-grave life cycle analysis.
A Guiding Hand:
Carbonvert serves as a strategic advisor, commercialization partner and lead cost-share investor for the project.
- - 2022 study kick-off
- - 5,000 - 20,000 tonnes of CO2/year capacity based on study output
- - Nuclear Energy → Direct Air Capture → Geologic Storage
