Controlling Fluid Distribution in Geologic Carbon Storage

Sequestration of anthropogenic CO2 in geologic formations is an important means to tackle global warming.

We propose to quantify and utilise the intricate coupling between geochemical reactions and fluid flow to control the distribution of the artificially introduced reactive fluid in nature.


We will combine a novel experimental technique for in situ kinetic measurement with advanced reactive transport modelling to study geologic carbon storage (GCS).


The project will provide both fundamental information and a numerical toolbox to ensure long term safety and efficiency of GCS.
