Iceland– a leader in football and climate change solutions!

Sequestration of  carbon underground is nothing new.   Of course the big challenge of this technology is that gas always finds a way to escape, until now.   A research project in Iceland, CarbFix, has shown that when CO2 is pumped into basalt a chemical reaction takes place that forms carbonate minerals –better known as stone.  Stone, being the solid that it is, should be able to lock away the CO2 indefinitely.   Based on the pilot, Reykjavik Energy, is now running a larger test and is burying nearly 10,000 tonnes of CO2 and around 7,300 tonnes of H2S.   If this works, the world will likely be turning to tiny Iceland to solve some very big climate change issues.    For way more accurate information click here.
