A strong international, interdisciplinary consortium with leading research institutions and industry representatives from Norway, the Netherlands, Germany, UK, USA, Romania and Greece has been established, supported by implementation partners. This will maximise the potential for the dissemination of project outcomes and provides direct routes for industrial implementation of the DigiMon system.
DigiMon is a project funded by ACT 2 Call (Accelerating CCS Technologies) and NORCE is hosting the project.
The ambition of ACT is to facilitate the emergence of CCUS via transnational funding of projects aimed at accelerating and maturing CCUS technology applications through targeted innovation and research activities.
A key component of any CCS project is measurement, monitoring and verification (MMV), which must demonstrate that projects are planned and executed in a societally acceptable and cost-effective manner, ensuring safety and security. DigiMon aims to develop and demonstrate an affordable, flexible, societally embedded and smart Digital Monitoring early-warning system, for monitoring any CO2 storage reservoir and subsurface barrier system receiving CO2 from fossil fuel power plants, oil refineries, process plants and other industries.
The DigiMon project involves development and integration of system components, available at intermediate-high Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs). It will develop the system components to a uniformly high TRL, prior to integration of components into the DigiMon early-warning system.
