Carbon Storage

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory addresses carbon emissions that contribute to climate change, which has become an international challenge. This photo shows small grains of basalt that have been mounted in epoxy. One option for reducing greenhouse gas buildup in the atmosphere is storing it deep underground. Laboratory experiments confirm that carbon dioxide is effectively trapped when injected into basalt formations.
