Convective mixing in geological storage of CO2

Organisation: Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australian National Low Emissions Coal Research & Development (ANLEC R&D)


Convective mixing of CO2 in saline aquifers is an important physical process that can significantly increase the amount of CO2 that is securely trapped in the aquifer. This process happens on a relatively small length scale, and as such, is difficult to accurately model in numerical simulations of geological storage on CO2.

In this webinar, Christopher Green and Jonathan Ennis-King, from CSIRO Energy presented an overview of Convective mixing of CO2 in geological storage and discuss the state-of-the art research into this interesting phenomenon.
