Arriving at Schwartze Pumpe Power Plant when the sun is shining and the steam is bellowing gently from the cooling towers, it is easy to forget that this facility is a 1600MW power station which produces approximately 10 million tonnes of CO2 per year.

In May 2012 a knowledge sharing event was held in Alabama, between 10 projects from the USA, Canada and the Network. This event focused on the CO2 monitoring techniques and approaches taken by the different projects. It was organised by The Southeast Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (SECARB), the Southern States Energy Board, the Global CCS Institute, Natural Resources Canada, the European CCS Demonstration Project Network and the U.S. Department of Energy.
