Closing the CO2 Cycle
Carbon capture and storage are essential to manage down the impacts of atmospheric CO2 levels. KAUST researchers are helping to reduce the CO2 reaching the atmosphere and are looking to remove CO2 that has already accumulated there. Novel materials and processes address capture directly from the air and at point emission sources. Storage via geo-based solutions, including basaltic rock chemistry, used for enhanced oil recovery and for geothermal energy transport are also key.
