In the span of just two centuries, our civilization has released tremendous amounts of carbon dioxide that had been naturally stored underground for millions of years. This release has led to the climate crisis we are facing. To cope with this, our energy and industrial processes must be rapidly decarbonized. CO2 produced from industrial sources must be buried in a safe and sustainable manner.
Ad Terra Energy is firmly committed to decarbonization and sequestration. The latter is supported by decades of expertise in reservoir exploration and development, with our experts working on both operational and applied research projects.
Current operational projects aim to inject CO2into the ground at oil and gas production and processing sites in order to considerably reduce their carbon footprints. The total storage capacity linked to our projects exceeds 4 million tonnes of CO2per year.
In our applied research, we work closely with international industrial groups and a network of leading research laboratories, including the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ). These studies aim not only to store the CO2 near production sites but also to use the fluid to create a closed-loop heat exchanger for the purposes of renewable heat and electricity production.
These approaches aim to maintain strategic industrial activities in Switzerland and Europe. They allow our clients and partners to demonstrate their full commitment to the environment and the climate through measurable activity based on an internationally standardised carbon credit system.

CCUS in Switzerland
This study summarises the results of our first-order conceptual feasibility study. We investigated the concept of injecting and circulating CO2 for geothermal energy production from potential CO2 storage formations (saline aquifers) in the Western part of the Swiss Molasse Basin.
Assuring the maintenance of the energy supply from fossil fuels. Using oil and gas in a safe, sustainable and ethical manner.
Using the natural thermal energy of the earth to heat, cool and produce electricity for our homes and cities.
Seasonal energy storage is essential for the energy transition. Our expertise allows us to identify and characterise suitable sites.
Establishing and managing water resources sustainably to improve drinking water supplies in regions that are arid as a result of drought or climate change.
Undertaking exploration campaigns to search for the mineral deposits needed to generate and store the renewable resources necessary for the energy transition.
