Role of CO2 Capture and Sequestration (CCS) Using Gas Hydrate Based Technology for Sustainable Energy Tejaswa Poothia, Dipti Mehra, Jyoti Singh, Prerna B.S. Rawat, Gaurav Pandey



Technology advancements and increasing energy demands has introduced the world to the major problem of climate change. The emission of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere due to combustion of fossil fuels has adversely affected biodiversity and ecosystem. For the remedial of this global issue, extensive studies come up with the hybrid approach of utilizing CO2 Capture Technology for sequestrating CO2 in hydrates. This paper aims to provide review of the current CO2 capture techniques and the work done to study the CO2 sequestration in porous medium using CCS technology. For the sequestration of CO2, CO2-CH4 exchange technique is mainly focused. The water saturation and clay minerals showed inhibitive nature on CO2 storage efficiency in natural hydrate bearing sediments. In addition, the gas chromatography provides evidence for the greater CO2 storage capability in hydrates. Further, this technique showed the wider aspect of CCS technology for generating energy and reducing excess CO2 from the atmosphere.
