Global warming is one of the major concerns of humankind and many scientists are alerting the need of actions to be taken here and now to limit the greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere. A worldwide effort is put in place, but solutions need to be validated and improved. The program Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is one of the viable solutions for reducing CO2 concentration in the atmosphere. CO2 storage in different conditions is a promising action and a big effort is devoted to foresee its multiple effects. Various CO2 trapping mechanisms contribute to the overall CO2 storage in a generic reservoir as a function of time. How fast and efficient these mechanisms are, is still poorly understood, and this project will address mainly the impact of convection on the solubility of CO2 in brines, which could be much faster than anticipated due to the concurring hydrodynamic instabilities. Experimental activities are currently performed within the CO2ES Industrial Chair. This project will be focused on simulations about the convective dissolution of CO2 in brine after injection in deep salted aquifers.
