A team of researchers in the Environmental Energy Technologies Division led by Hanna Breunig has published a paper analyzing regional options for managing brine from carbon capture and sequestration projects. The research, described in a feature article here, looks at how brine brought to the surface from saline aquifers during the process of carbon sequestration might be managed and used in other applications.
