and tailings. The team projects that direct capture at remote mine sites could lead to carbon fixation rates of ~0.25 million tonnes CO2 per year at a large mine, while coupling industrial CO2 streams proximal to more accessible mine sites could lead to carbon fixation rates of ~1 million tonnes per year at a single site.

Project: Physical-chemical response to geomechanical processes during geological sequestration of scCO2

Lead Investigator: Dr. Giovanni Grasselli, University of Toronto

Co-PIs: Aimy Bazylak, U of Toronto; Patrick Selvadurai, McGill University; Subhasis Ghoshal, McGill University; Alfonso Mucci, McGill University; David Cole, Ohio State University; John Wen, U Waterloo, Carolyn Ren, U Waterloo, Janusz Kozinski, York University; Morris Flynn, U of Alberta.

CMC Investment: $750,000/3 years

Presently, CO2 numerical simulations focus on just two processes, hydro and chemical, which often disregards the effect of mechanical stresses and geometry of the geological formations where CO2 is stored. Researchers on this project are working to provide a more complete picture of how injected CO2 interacts and influences complex geological formations. Through this project, scientists will develop a computational system that incorporates micro-scale level thermo, hydro, mechanical and chemical (THMC) processes that occur when CO2 is injected into geologic rock formations. This system will be used to estimate large-scale processes such as the rates at which CO2 can be injected without compromising the storage integrity of the host rock formation, the nature and extent of the stable plumes that develop as injection proceeds for several decades, and their possible interaction with potable groundwater systems.

Project: A new approach to quantitative CO2 injection monitoring with geo-electrical methods

Lead Investigator: Dr. Bernard Giroux, Institut national de la recherche scientifique
