Study on CO2 storage in carbonates

Minerals and CO2 can react together to permanently store CO2 as a solid carbonate product, which can then be safely stored underground or turned into useful products such as bricks, said the institute.

The study aims to provide an in-depth assessment of the distribution of suitable minerals in conjunction with an estimation of the extent to which these minerals can be used in an economic manner.
A consortium led by Caterpillar and including Shell, the British Geological Survey, and the Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Storage at the University of Nottingham, was selected to carry out this £1million project for the Energy Technologies Institute.
