The CarbonNet Project

The CarbonNet Project is working towards establishing a commercial scale Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) network in Gippsland, Victoria.

Our Vision

To develop a world class, commercially viable CCS hub in Gippsland that provides a safe, competitive, flexible solution for Victoria to manage its future carbon emissions from industrial sources, while supporting economic development opportunities.

CCS is being investigated in Victoria, and implemented around the world, because it is recognised as a key climate change mitigation strategy, with the potential to play an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from industry.

Successful implementation of this project will lead to a commercial scale carbon transportation and storage system, safeguarding existing jobs, introducing new industries and employment opportunities to the Latrobe Valley, and enabling significant reduction in CO2 emissions in Victoria.

The CarbonNet project is advancing the science and viability of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) at a commercial scale through field investigations at the project’s Pelican site in Bass Strait, off the South East coast of Australia.

As CarbonNet proceeds to commercialisation it aims to secure a low emissions future for Victoria through the decarbonisation of industries such as hydrogen and fertiliser production, while boosting jobs and increasing investment into the State.

CarbonNet is funded by the Victorian and Commonwealth governments.
