Geologist Juerg Matter of the University of Southampton is interviewed by Slate and talks about project CarbFix and how to capture CO2 emissions underground.

In a recent interview in Slate Magazine, Geologist Juerg Matter of the University of Southampton, U.K talks about the Iceland-based project CarbFix that is aiming at being an effective measure to capture CO2 emissions from a geothermal power plant and storing the greenhouse gas underground, with the idea of eventually making it a carbon neutral energy source.

So far, the project has only been done on a small scale but there are ambitions to take this into a full-blown project to make a viable option for effective carbon storage.
