VIDEO: How do rocks store CO2?

Dr Maxine Akhurst, principal geologist at the British Geological Survey (project lead for work package 3), gets some help from two rock stars to show how certain rocks are ideal for storing the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide (CO2) deep below ground and ensuring it stays put.

By the time CO2 captured from an industrial facility arrives at a geological storage site, for example, beneath the North Sea, it will have been compressed to form a supercritical fluid, which is able to displace water from between the grains of sandstone.
