As concern grows over the effects of rising carbon dioxide levels in Earth’s atmosphere, governments and private industry are exploring technological innovations to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Geologic sequestration, part of carbon capture and storage technology, involves injecting carbon dioxide captured from an emission source into subsurface geologic formations for long-term storage.
Cadmus is the only firm that has evaluated the complex permit applications submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to ensure that the large volumes of carbon dioxide injected do not endanger underground sources of drinking water.
Our permit application review process considers each element of a multifaceted permit application and supports the development of protective geologic sequestration well permits and associated project plans that govern all aspects of site selection, operation, monitoring, and post-injection site care and site closure.
The Cadmus team includes geologists, hydrogeologists, geochemists, modeling experts, well engineers, risk analysts, and finance experts who can provide experienced support at every phase of a geologic sequestration project, from verifying site suitability and appropriate well construction, through evaluating monitoring data, and evaluating post-injection site care and closure.
