Carbfix, an Icelandic startup, has developed a unique method to store CO2 by mixing it with groundwater and injecting it into basalt rock, condensing a process that normally takes thousands of years into just two. The company’s technology has gained attention from world leaders and is seen as a potential solution to reduce pollution.

Article Summary:

An Icelandic startup, Carbfix, has developed an innovative method to expedite the removal of air pollution by storing CO2 in basalt rock. The company mixes carbon dioxide with groundwater and injects it into the rock, speeding up a process that typically takes thousands of years to just two. This technology has garnered attention from world leaders, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo.

Carbfix’s method of carbon capture and storage (CCS) differs from traditional methods by permanently sequestering CO2 as a mineral, rather than just storing it underground. In addition to CCS, other strategies such as carbon farming and natural carbon storage by ecosystems like seagrass and trees are also being explored to address excess carbon emissions.
