  • Local Capillary Trapping in Geological Storage of Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

    By Ehsan Saadatpoor

    After the injection of CO2 into a subsurface formation, storage mechanisms help immobilize the CO2. Injection strategies that promote the movement of CO2 during the post-injection period can increase immobilization by mechanisms of dissolution and residual phase trapping. This book argues that the…
