The U.S. Department of Energy has selected a project led by Princeton University Professor Michael Celia for funding. The project is one of 13 chosen to develop technologies and methodologies for geologic storage of carbon dioxide (CO2).
Celia’s project, which is joint with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Heriot Watt University in Scotland, will develop new modeling capabilities for simulation of CO2 and brine migration in fractured reservoirs. Flow interacti
The world's accounting system for carbon emissions, run by the United Nations, disregards capital investments in future coal-fired and natural-gas power plants that will commit the world to several decades and billions of tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
