CCS is critical for achieving Net-Zero.

“…CCUS is the only group of technologies that contributes both to reducing emissions in key sectors directly and to removing CO2 to balance emissions that cannot be avoided. This is a critical part of reaching ’net’ zero targets.” *

How it works.

Brucite-Rich Serpentinized Peridotite CO2 Mineralization

Brucite, and to a very much lesser extent serpentine, in Brucite-Rich Serpentinized Peridotite reacts with CO2 to create carbonates – this process is known as hard rock CCS mineralization and permanently locks away CO2.

In-Situ & Ex-Situ

Hard rock CCS mineralization can either take place In-situ (subsurface) or Ex-situ (surface).

Chemistry & Engineering

Chemistry and engineering are applied to accelerate and maximize the permanent storage of CO2.

In-situ storage

CO2 icon

Step 1

Surface water is charged with CO2 from the atmosphere or a pressurized CO2 stream

Mineral icon

Step 2

The charged water is injected back into the Brucite-Rich Serpentinized Peridotite creating carbonate minerals and permanent CO2 storage

Ex-situ storage

Pump icon

Method 1

Type II/high pH water from Brucite-Rich Serpentinized Peridotite rock is pumped to surface which precipitates CO2 from the atmosphere

Tools icon

Method 2

Brucite-Rich Serpentinized Peridotite rock is extracted and processed.

CO2 icon

Method 2

Processed rock is either:

  • Regularly churned and watered to accelerate and maximize reaction with atmospheric CO2, or
  • A CO2 stream is injected into the materials to accelerate and maximize mineralization
Agriculture icon

Method 2

Resulting material maybe repurposed in agriculture, forestry, and other sectors.

CO2LOCK has proven science.

Independent research supported by Geoscience BC and UBC studying Brucite-Rich Serpentinized Peridotites (ultramafic rocks) in BC found they have massive CCS potential.

“…ex-situ carbon mineralization has an estimated sequestration capacity of 56 Gt CO2; this represents more than 800 years of GHG emissions in B.C. at current rates.” 1
