A $4.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to the University of South Carolina will determine the feasibility of storing carbon dioxide underground in an effort to curb global climate change.
The funding, which will go to researchers from the universitys Earth Sciences and Resources Institute (ESRI) and department of earth and ocean sciences, is one of only 11 national awards from DOEs National Energy Technology Laboratory. The grants are valued at $75.5 million and are aimed at understanding whether CO2 a greenhouse gas believed to be a culprit in climate change can be safely stored in geologic formations, including abandoned oil and gas reservoirs, coal beds and underground reservoirs of salt water, also called deep saline aquifers.
