"The concept of Distributed Carbon Capture and Storage (DCCS) for small scale CO2 sources, such as Distributed Energy Systems (DES), is proposed, and Carbon Storage in a Shallow Aquifer (CSSA), in which CO2 is stored in shallow aquifers as aqueous solution, is also studied as a technique for the DCCS," scientists in Kanagawa, Japan report.
"A conceptual design for the CSSA have been performed and the fundamental calculations in this study show that the dissolution capacity, that is, the amount of CO2 which can be dissolved into unit volume of water in a shallow aquifer is 10-35 kg-CO2/m(3) in the range of the storage depth of 100-500 m. The dissolution capacity of the CSSA...
