This project is looking to produce a good practice guide for measuring carbon dioxide (CO2) streams containing different levels of impurities, as there is a gap in this area. The decarbonisation of hard-to-reach sectors (i.e. heating of homes and flexible power generation) requires knowledge on the presence and magnitude of impurities present in their resulting CO2 streams, as it can ultimately save money and permit a safer operation.

This project aims at producing a good practice guide for measuring carbon dioxide (CO2) streams containing diverse levels of impurities, which will assist developers and allow for the most appropriate measurement techniques to be specified. To achieve this we will:
• Review existing guidelines, their scope and generate a database on existing guidelines and CO2 streams (sources, composition and end-users)
• Identify and define the audience and scope of the guidelines to ensure industry needs are met
• Recommend measurement technologies (i.e. by creating a comparative matrix)
Existing CO2 Measurement Methods
The CO2 guidelines will:
• Become an addition to the Energy Institute’s library, which will also complement the ISO2713 standard.
• Address the CO2 transportation of CO2 streams from CO2 sources to storage sites or utilisation.
• Meet the needs of stakeholders (including policymakers and regulation developers) in the CO2 sector and used in the decarbonisation sector.
