A basalt rich rock (composed of various metal oxides is shown surrounded by streams of water and carbon dioxide resulting in the formation of various metal carbonates

Carbon storage conundrum

Effective storage of CO2 as a carbonate requires us to understand the influence of composition, temperature and pressue upon hydration, dissolution, passivation, ion transport and crystallization.
