Does Teréga practise CO2 capture?

Teréga’s teams are working to design the multi-energy network of tomorrow. CO2 capture opens up many prospects in this field. To deal with the challenges of the ecological and energy transition, the different forms of energy need to work together to limit losses, but also to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

And so we run projects to study the conversion of surplus renewable electricity into green hydrogen, and then into synthetic methane by combining the hydrogen with CO2 captured from industrial emissions. This is the process, known as methanation, that we hope will enable us to recycle CO2 emissions.

PYCASSO: a practical CO2 capture project

The PYCASSO project, in which we are involved alongside thirty other institutions and industrial partners, is indeed aimed at capturing the CO2 coming from industry in South West France and Northern Spain, transporting it and then putting it into geological storage in depleted oil and gas deposits in the Pyrenean Piemont area. Partnerships will be set up with the hydrogen industry in the Lacq basin to utilise some of the stored CO2 in the form of methane or methanol.

JUPITER 1000: the leading French Power-to-Gas industry demonstrator

In a similar vein, we are a partner in the JUPITER 1000 project. This industrial plant in the South of France is aimed at transforming renewable energy into hydrogen, and then synthetic methane, through the capture of CO2 from neighbouring industrial emissions.
