National Research Laboratory at Curtin Uni stores CO2 underground


Curtin University contracted National Projects Pty Ltd (Builder) who engaged NWSM Building Group as sub-contractors to design and construct the 23 x 13m NGL workshop (National Geosequestration Laboratory),  amenities building and carport at the Bentley campus.

“The NGL, centered at the Australian Resources Research Centre (ARRC) at the Bentley campus in Perth, is a national facility investigating technologies that capture CO2 from industrial processes and safely stores it underground in stable geological formations,” said Megan Meates, Public Relations Manager of Curtin University.


“The facility is a collaboration between Curtin University, CSIRO and UWA to support the critical research into the long-term geological storage of CO2. It will support the scientific research needs of the Collie-South West Hub Geosequestration demonstration project and will be one of the most significant international centres for research, training and technology development for the global resources sector.” said Meades.

Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills, Science and Research, Senator the Hon Chris Evans, announced funding would be provided by the Education Investment Fund for the Laboratory.

Professor Graeme Wright, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Development, said “This is an exciting achievement for Curtin and I look forward to seeing innovative solutions developed by our researchers that help Australia reduce its carbon emissions.”
