Project Description: 

Reducing the carbon in the atmosphere is an increasingly vital step in mitigating climate change. Geological carbon sequestration, through the mechanism of capillary trapping, takes place on a relatively short timescale and securely traps the CO2 in the subsurface. This study will aim to reduce the injection fluid’s connectivity by conducting experiments varying flow conditions, flowrates, and pore geometries to determine how to increase residual saturation of the CO2.
