The Center

Mission Statement: To build a fundamental understanding of molecular-to-pore-scale processes in fluid-rock systems, and to demonstrate the ability to control critical aspects of flow, transport, and mineralization in porous rock media as applied to the injection and storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) in subsurface reservoirs. This DOE Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) is a collaborative effort led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and including the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Ohio State University, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), the University of California campus at Davis, and Washington University in St. Louis. This Center is one of forty-six new U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRC).
