AU$48m for CO2 research laboratory

The Australian Government launched a $48 million National Geosequestration Laboratory (NGL) on 27 September.

The facility will be based at the Australian Resources Research Centre in Perth, with nodes at other sites.

The project is a collaboration between the national science agency, CSIRO, the University of Western Australia and Curtin University. The lab will support the design and implementation of commercial-scale CO2 storage programmes and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the government said.

The hope is that the opportunity offered at NGL will attract international talent to Australia and boost collaboration with industry.
