Project Summary

In North America, the estimates for available carbon dioxide sequestration capacity range from 2,600 gigatons to 22,000 Gt, and estimates in other countries are just as variable. In this project the scientists hope to gain a fundamental understanding of nanoconfined phase-changes and to improve models to predict sequestration capacities accurately.
