Recent Advances in CO2 Storage Science and Technology

March 22, 2017

Perlstein Hall Auditorium, Illinois Institute of Technology
10 West 33rd Street, Chicago, IL, USA


Geological storage of carbon dioxide has the potential for significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.

While the fundamental scientific underpinnings of CO2 storage build on a century-long exploration of the physics of multiphase flow in porous media, there are aspects that remain unexplored and warrant further investigation. In this talk, Professor Benson will review recent experimental and theoretical research on multiphase flow of CO2 and brine in heterogeneous rocks, pore and continuum scale studies of the stability of residually trapped CO2, and monitoring of CO2 migration using pressure transient data. The implications of the findings from advances in CO2 storage science will be discussed for realworld projects.



Wednesday, March 22 3:15 to 4:30 pm, followed by light refreshments at 4:30 pm. The program will be held on the IIT campus in the Perlstein Hall Auditorium, room 131, 10 W. 33rd Street, Chicago. Overflow seating will be available in the Perlstein north-end lobby.

This program will be recorded, and available online following the lecture.
