Title (EN) METHODS FOR STABLE SEQUESTRATION OF CARBON DIOXIDE IN AN AQUIFER
(FR) PROCÉDÉS DE SÉQUESTRATION STABLE DE DIOXYDE DE CARBONE DANS UN AQUIFÈRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The methods disclosed herein relate to sequestering carbon dioxide in an aquifer by trapping the CO2 in interstitial pores of the aquifer. Trapping the CO2 in the interstitial pores of the aquifer prevents the sequestered CO2 from escaping back to the surface and allows a much larger percentage of a CO2 to be stably sequestered compared to techniques that rely on dissolving the CO2 to achieve stable sequestration.
(FR)Les procédés décrits concernent la séquestration de dioxyde de carbone dans un aquifère par le piégeage de CO2 dans des pores interstitiels de l’aquifère. Le piégeage du CO2 dans les pores interstitiels de l’aquifère empêche le CO2 d’être libéré à nouveau en surface, et permet de séquestrer de manière stable un pourcentage beaucoup plus important de CO2 par rapport à des techniques utilisant une dissolution du CO2 pour produire une séquestration stable.
