The capture and storage of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in deep, underground geologic formations represents one of the most promising options for mitigating the impacts of greenhouse gases on global warming. In this study, PNNL researchers examine the interfacial reactions of the commonly found olivine forsterite mineral with supercritical carbon dioxide containing water. By using electron microscopy, scientists gain a better understanding of the reaction with carbon dioxide and minerals. The research shows promising results for the safe, long-term storage of greenhouse gases. Bruce Arey, Andy Felmy, Odeta Qafoku, Zheming Wang provided the image, which was colored by graphic designer Nathan Johnson.
