Mineral carbonation opportunities in the western United States
May 22-26, 2017
Mineral carbonation—the production of carbonates from carbon dioxide and alkaline earth compounds—is a candidate route for carbon capture and storage because alkali earth carbonates are stable over geologic time. Successful mineral carbonization requires a source of alkalinity near a source of carbon dioxide and a chemical pathway requiring only mild energy input.
