In the next webinar of IGC.events, Dr. Edda Sif Pind Aradóttir, CEO of Icelandic company Carbfix will provide an insight into the company's process of capturing and turning CO2 to stone at the geothermal power operations in Iceland.

Icelandic company Carbfix has seen a lot of interest for its work on carbon storage at the geothermal power plant of Hellisheidi, Iceland.

Started out as a research project in 2006 and the success of a pilot project, the project turned company now captures CO2 from emission points or from the atmosphere and injects CO2 charged waters into geological formations.

Following the success of the pilot injections , the injection was scaled up to industrial scale at Hellisheidi geothermal power plant and has since been been an integral part of the operation of the Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plant since June 2014. At current capturing capacity, approximately 1/3rd of the CO2 and about 3/4th of the H2S emissions from the plant are being re-injected, or approximately 10,000 tonnes of CO2 and about 6,000 tonnes of H2S annually.

In the webinar on 12 June 2020 at 14:00 CEST, the company’s CEO Dr. Edda Sif Pind Aradóttir will introduce her company and the Carbfix process of capturing and turning CO2 to stone
