Menefee & Schwartz (2024): Quantifying the Value of Geologic Carbon Mineralization for Project Risk Management in Carbon Capture and Removal Pathways

Anne H. Menefee, Brandon A. Schwartz IN: Energy Fuels,

Carbon mineralization is the most secure form of carbon sequestration, but the value of mineral trapping relative to those of other mechanisms has not been quantified. Here, a techno-economic framework is developed to determine a levelized (investment) value of mineralization across a range of scenarios for CO2 capture or removal, injection schemes, and mineralization rates.
