WELCOME TO THE NATIONAL RISK ASSESSMENT PARTNERSHIP (NRAP)

Carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) is recognized as a key technology to reduce anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and enable the environmentally sustainable use of our nation’s abundant energy resources. A key technical challenge of CCUS is to demonstrate that captured CO2 can be safely and permanently stored in deep geologic formations (i.e., by geologic carbon storage–GCS).

The U.S. DOE’s National Risk Assessment Partnership (NRAP) is a collaboration of five U.S. national laboratories focused on quantifying and managing subsurface environmental risks to support implementation of safe and secure large-scale GCS.

NRAP is focused on developing and demonstrating science-based methods, computational tools, workflows, and protocols to quantitatively assess and manage environmental risks at geologic carbon storage sites.
