The CO2StoP project created a database of locations and capacities of underground geological formations in Europe that could be used to store carbon dioxide. It also created a tool to calculate the fraction of the theoretical storage capacity that can be accessed using all currently available technologies (regardless of cost). Producing estimates were very similar to the Technically Accessible CO2 Storage Resource (TASR) used by the US Geological Survey. The project was in line with the need to develop European assessment standards in this area. IGSMiE PAN prepared data on 20 geological structures in saline levels.
