A study led by the IDAEA and the IMEDEA CSIC-UIB has shown that injecting billions of tonnes of atmospheric CO2 (carbon dioxide) underground has a low risk of leakage back to the surface. According to the simulations, the CO2 would remain deep in the subsurface for millions of years, even if the overlying low-permeability rocks were fractured. These results indicate that this technology, called geological CO2 storage, can be safely undertaken to mitigate climate change.
