Book Linking the Chain

This page gives access to a downloadable PDF-file of the book Linking the chain-Integrated CATO2 knowledge prepares for the next step in CO2 Capture & Storage and provides references for further reading. Here we list a selection of the main public literature on the specific issues per chapter and per highlight. This is only a limited selection, aiming at servicing readers that want to dive deeper into the specific subjects. More literature (sometimes restricted access) is available at the CATO2 website under the menu Publications. Under the menu Publications, the doctoral theses of the CATO2 PhD students are also made available as PDF-files.

When we provide a link below, it is to an external website (except the CATO2 book: the link is a direct download of a PDF-file). Some texts are copyright protected, hence no link is provided.
