PNNL Researchers Honored by Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum
Congratulations to Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Robert Dahowski, Jim Dooley, and Casie Davidson, with their Chinese and U.S. collaborators, for receiving a recognition award from the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum. The team recently completed an intensive five-year research project that revealed that China has enough geologic storage capacity to capture and store carbon dioxide from industrial sources for at least a century.
The Forum is a Ministerial-level international climate change initiative focused on the development of carbon capture and sequestration technologies. The Forum presented the award during its 3rd Ministerial Meeting in London in October 2009. The award went to the research team comprising Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Institute of Rock and Soil Mechanics, and Leonardo Technologies, Inc.
