Carl Talsma Presents to Pennsylvania Dept of Conservation and Natural Resources

Carbon Solutions scientist Carl Talsma presented to the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources on March 29th on the challenges of pipeline routing and ways to minimize the environmental and social impact of CCUS pipelines using CostMAPPRO. The presentation demonstrated the methods used in CostMAPPRO as well as strategies that can be employed to route around sensitive areas. Some specific challenges to pipeline routing in Pennsylvania were discussed including increased risks of landslide, geohazards, and the preservation of state forest land and how CostMAPPRO might address these challenges.
