Battelle researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory believe one solution to keeping the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide, out of our atmosphere can be found under our feet. In a first-of-its-kind study, researchers are collecting data on 1,000 tons of CO2 pumped one-half mile underground into basalt in Wallula, Wash. The results will determine if the greenhouse gas can be safely and permanently stored in basalt, a process called carbon sequestration.
