Seminar (Career Workshop) - “Northern Lights” and the role of subsurface in Carbon Capture and Storage

Speaker: Dr. Renata Meneguolo - Equinor, Stavanger (Norway) | 4 Aprile 4,30 PM ! Aula Arduino


Capture and storage of carbon dioxide (CCS) is considered a crucial tool for the decarbonization of emissions from energy and hard-to-abate industries. Geoscience has a crucial role in the multidisciplinary assessment of the three building blocks of safe CO2 geological storage: containment, injectivity and capacity.
