Shelter and Escape in the Event of a Release of CO2 from CCS Infrastructure

The aim of this project is to develop validated and computationally efficient shelter and escape models describing the consequences to the surrounding population of a carbon dioxide (CO2) release from Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) transportation infrastructure. The models will allow pipeline operators, regulators and standard setters to make informed and appropriate decisions regarding pipeline safety and emergency response.
