Creating the technology for safe, long-term carbon storage in the subsurface

Objective

CarbFix is a combined industrial/academic research program created to 1) increase measurably our understanding of the long-term fate of CO2 injected into the subsurface, 2) develop new technology to facility the safe and permanent of geologic carbon storage, and 3) publicise the results of this research allowing them to be applied internationally. Unique to CarbFix its running of the Hellisheidi CO2 injection pilot plant, the world’s first CO2 storage project aimed at optimizing CO2 mineral carbonation in the subsurface. This pilot plant allows CarbFix to develop, test and demonstrate to the public novel injection and mentoring methods illuminating the fate of injected CO2. The CarbFix research program combines observations from the Hellisheidi power plant and the Compostilla EEPR site with laboratory based experiments, study of natural analogs, predictive model development, numerical modelling, and model validation to improve our understanding of the long-term fate of geologically stored CO2.
