What happens to CO2 at a depth of three kilometers? More insight into CCS
Marco De Paoli has been awarded a prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowship. The MSCA program is funded by the European Commission and supports excellent research projects in Europe and worldwide. Marco will team up with Detlef Lohse and other researchers from the Physics of Fluids (PoF) research group. Marco’s project will be on geological sequestration of carbon dioxide. This process is relevant for mitigation of climate change, since emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by anthropogenic activities can be considerably reduced with this technique. CO2 produced from combustion of fossil fuels is captured and injected 1 to 3 km beneath the earth surface. Since it is hard to predict the behaviour of CO2 at those depths, they will perform experiments and simulations to understand the dynamics of the process at the labs of University of Twente.
