What We Need to Know for Successful Carbon Sequestration


Dr. Gene Ulmer, Temple University Emeritus


Despite the scientific discovery of CO2 in 1756, the properties of CO2 as would pertain down the geothermal gradient in deep geologic sequestration are still being developed, particularly at pressures greater than 10 atmospheres. This talk will explore what data are yet needed for successful sequestration-designing and what labs are working on obtaining these data.
