The European Green Deal states that "energy storage and carbon capture, storage and utilization” is one of the priority areas to reduce greenhouse gas emissions of 55 % by 2030 and to become carbon neutral by 2050.

The project has received funding from the European Partnership on Metrology, co-financed by European Union Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme and from the Participating States.

Report A3.1.2: Literature survey on commercially available cylinders for the preparation of PRMs for CCUS

The WP3 on Chemical Metrology has finalised a literature survey on commercially available cylinders for the preparation of Primary Reference Materials (PRMs) for Carbon Capture and Storage. 

The report reviews the surface passivation treatments that are available for gas cylinders for a number of impurities relevant for CCUS.  Literature review, experiences from partners, and other metrology projects served as sources to assess the availability of cylinders that will allow stable mixtures to be produced. 

Most of the information is obtained from other matrices than CO2. For some of these impurities, information is currently lacking. The outcomes of the MetCCUS project will increase knowledge on appropriate gas cylinders by performing a two-year stability study on defined mixtures.
