Improving the chances for fuel recovery and carbon sequestration
Released: March 27, 2014
A team of PNNL scientists working at EMSL find a carbon dioxide film that forms on kaolinite releases at a certain pressure, allowing fewer interactions to occur between the carbon dioxide and the mineral. The findings have implications for fuel recovery and carbon sequestration.
