Why CarbFix?

Reducing industrial CO2 emissions is considered one of the main challenges of this century. By capturing CO2 from variable sources and injecting it into suitable deep rock formations, the carbon released is returned back where it was extracted instead of freeing it to the atmosphere. This technology mitigates climate change as injecting CO2 at carefully selected geological sites with large potential storage capacity can be a long lasting and environmentally benign storage solution.

To address this challenge, the CarbFix process is designed to optimize industrial methods for storing CO2 in favorable rock formations through;

  • capture of CO2 from emission points or from the atmosphere,
  • injection of CO2 charged waters into geological formations,

A second and equally important goal of this research project is to generate the human capital and expertise to apply the advances made in this project in the future.
