The Timberlands Sequestration (TS) Project is a carbon capture and storage project for a pulp and paper mill in Alabama. The TS Project will be designed to capture approximately 2 million metric tons per annum of CO2 for 30 years from the mill’s flue gas stream and inject that CO2 underground for permanent storage.

The TS Project will consist of a carbon capture plant that will remove CO2 from the mill’s flue gas, a pipeline that will transport dense-phase CO2 from the capture plant to the storage site, a Class VI well for CO2 injection into saline reservoirs 4,000 to 7,000 feet beneath the surface, and monitoring wells to track the injected CO2, injection formation fluids, and sample underground sources of drinking water during and after operations. When fully constructed, the TS Project will be capable of storing 60 million metric tons of CO2 over 30 years.

DOE CarbonSAFE Grant

In Q2 2023, DOE selected the TS Project for a Phase III CarbonSAFE grant award negotiation. The grant award will be used to advance the development of all facets of the project: capture plant engineering and design, pipeline system engineering and design, storage site characterization and design, and permitting. We anticipate commencing the grant-funded work in January 2024. This work is expected to take over 2 years to complete.
