Phase II Injection
On July 17, 2013, scientists working with the Big Sky Carbon Sequestration Partnership (BSCSP), Battelle, and other partners began injecting 1,000 tons of CO2 into a deep basalt formation located near Wallula, Washington. Research findings from the injection project will provide valuable information regarding the long-term storage potential and economic feasibility of using basalt formations to permanently store CO2 emissions.
