Study of trapping mechanisms of supercritical carbon dioxide in deep heterogeneous geological formations through intermediate-scale testing and modeling
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) represents a technology aimed to reduce atmospheric release of CO2 from power plants and heavy industries by injecting it into deep geological reservoirs, such as saline aquifers. The storage process relies on the effectiveness of safely retaining the injected supercritical fluid in deep underground formations over the long term through a number of trapping mechanisms that include structural, residual, dissolution, and mineral trapping. Improved fundamental understanding of these processes is expected to contribute toward better conceptual models, improved numerical ...
