CNRS provides 7 new facilities

The French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) joined ECCSEL-France in 2021, with currently 8 state-of-the-art facilities mainly related to CO2 storage.

The French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) joined ECCSEL-France in 2021, with currently 7 state-of-the-art facilities mainly related to CO2 storage.

CNRS is among the world's leading research institutions, where scientists explore the living world, matter, the Universe, and the functioning of human societies to meet major challenges of today and tomorrow. It is internationally recognised for the excellence of its scientific research and is a reference in the world of research and development, as well as for the general public. CNRS currently provides 8 state-of-the-art facilities mainly related to CO2 storage and there will be more facilities later.

The French node is now composed of 7 organisations: Andra, BRGM, CNRS, EDF, IFP Energies nouvelles, INERIS, TotalEnergies (5 research organisations and 2 companies). Under the coordination of BRGM.

This autumn we have presented the eight CNRS facilities on our social media channels (Twitter and LinkedIn). They contribute significantly to the expanding ECCSEL research infrastructure, by giving access to experimental platforms and field labs to address research and innovation gaps within the fields of CO2 storage, but also CO2 utilisation and CO2 transport.

Researchers and engineers across the world can apply for user access to these open facilities. Do you want to know more about the facilities? Read more about them in our facility factsheets:

LSBB (storage)

SHAGAL (storage)

NanoμLab (storage, utilisation, transport)

ICARE Lab (storage)

HydExp (storage)

GEM (storage, utilisation)

WRI-HTP (storage, utilisation)
