Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is one of the interim technologies to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from stationary sources, e.g., power plant and large industrial facilities. A new graphical technique based on pinch analysis is proposed to address the planning problem of the storage of captured CO2 from power plants into corresponding reservoirs. The graphical tool of carbon storage composite curves serves as a valuable decision support tool for the CCS planning problem. It identifies the amount of additional CO2 storage requirement as well as the excess storage capacity available from the total reservoir capacity in the planning time horizon. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the CHISA 2012 - 20th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering and PRES 2012 - 15th Conference PRES (Prague, Czech Republic 8/25-29/2012).
