Kevin Dome Large Scale Storage Project

The Big Sky Carbon Sequestration Partnership (BSCSP) is excited to begin work on an eight-year, large scale carbon storage research project in northern Montana. This study seeks to demonstrate the safety and viability of injecting 1 million tons of CO2 into the Kevin Dome, a large geologic feature located in Toole County, Montana.

Basalt Pilot Overview

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.
