Abstract

Carbon dioxide storage is better and better concerned on international level as a viable option to mitigate climate change. However, for a site being acceptable for CO2 storage some basic, geological related criteria has to be fulfilled. Hungary has annual stationary point source CO2 emissions around 23 Mt, of which more than 70% is related to the energy sector. According to recent assessment of storage potential, more than 4000 Mt of CO2 could be stored in the subsurface.
