Underground Storage of Carbon Dioxide Safer than Expected
Carbon capturing and storage could contribute to reducing the emission of climate-damaging gases in the atmosphere. An international research team has now shown that carbon dioxide dissolved in water remains stored in certain types of rock layers far longer than first envisaged.
