Conference paper


This paper discussed effects of temperature, pressure salinity and presence of rock and pH behavior of the system and formation of carbonates. Experiments are conducted in a high pressure high temperature reactor and effluents were collected, weighed and photographed using SEM. The aim of this research was to enhance the knowledge about mineralization mechanisms of CO2 sequestration in saline aquifers.
