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
