We introduce an emerging concept—Gigatonne One—that will eventually identify hundreds of different pathways for the United States to capture, transport, and utilize and store a billion tonnes or more of CO2 each year. The concept is being developed by members of the SimCCS community, called Team SimCCS, a network of 25 researchers from 15 different institutions, including industry partners, universities, research institutions, national laboratories, governmental agencies, and NGOs. The SimCCSPRO software, developed by CARBON SOLUTIONS LLC, is core to Gigatonne One, including the optimization framework (SimCCSPRO), a dynamic and flexible CO capture database (NICO2LEPRO), next-generation pipeline routing and networks (CostMAPPRO), and the most advanced software for integrating dynamic injection and plume evolution with sequestration economics (SCO2TPRO).
