SANEDI Honoured by the Ugu District Municipality Council

In support of the Pilot CO2 Storage Project (PCSP) in the year 2015 the South African Carbon Capture and Storage (SACCCS) embarked on a Pilot CO2 Monitoring Capacity Building Project (PMP) at the Natural CO2 Release in Bongwana near Harding in KZN and Mbizana in the Eastern Cape to inform the development of a detailed monitoring plan for the PCSP.
PMP was a capacity building initiative, the objective of the project was to develop methodologies and protocols in surface measurement, monitoring and verification of CO2, thus equipping the monitoring team with global CCS expertise. The ideal location for monitoring are located where the CO2 gas exhalations are observed along the +80km long geological fault. Various work packages were established as follows

  • • The measurement of CO2 in the atmosphere and soil domain.
  • • Surface and groundwater monitoring.
  • • Environmental impacts of CO2.
  • • Continual stakeholder engagement activities.
