Greenhouse Gas Storage
The role of Geoscience Australia in greenhouse gas storage is principally to provide advice to the Australian Government on the geological storage of carbon dioxide, particularly in the areas of policy development and the preparation of legislation and regulations to allow storage to occur. We also provide advice on the selection of sites to be released for exploration for carbon dioxide storage and keep the government informed on international developments.
