|Research project title||MRI studies and modelling of carbon sequestration in porous media|
Carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration in the sub-surface is seen as a potential mitigation technique for global climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions. It is therefore necessary to understand the behaviour of CO2 stored in geological formations over a range of time-scales. The aims of the project are:
- To study the single, two- and possibly three phase flow of CO2 in porous media (as CO2 injected into the ground will inevitably be present alongside either water and/or oil phases using NMR techniques, and thus advance the scientific pore-scale understanding of these processes using a lab-based approach.
- To model the above systems using lattice Boltzmann (LB) simulations, and use the obtained experimental data for model validation.
