How Can Carbon Mineralization Help Fight Climate Change?

Past Event

December 6, 2021

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Carbon mineralization is a process in which carbon dioxide (CO2) becomes bound in rocks as a solid mineral. This happens naturally at a slow rate as certain rocks are exposed to carbon dioxide, permanently removing small amounts of CO2–the leading greenhouse gas–from the atmosphere each year.

A new report co-authored by Columbia University scholars finds the climate change benefits of enhancing carbon mineralization processes could be enormous. The ICEF Carbon Mineralization Roadmap explores several strategies, including injecting CO2-rich fluids into underground rock formations and exposing crushed rocks to CO2-rich gases. The report recommends that policy makers and businesses devote considerably more attention to carbon mineralization in their climate change strategies. The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted several co-authors of the report to present their recommendations for using carbon mineralization processes to help achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
