What Carbon Sequestration Looks Like
by Txchnologist Staff
Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory investigate the process of capturing and storing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in underground geologic formations.
A team of scientists took and colored this electron microscope image of supercritical carbon dioxide containing water that had become fixed to the common mineral olivine forsterite. Using this imaging technique, researchers gain a better understanding of the reaction between carbon dioxide and minerals. They say their research shows promising results for the safe, long-term storage of greenhouse gases.
