Title: 𝘚𝘊𝘖₂𝘛ᴾᴿᴼ: Unlocking the Nation’s Subsurface to Support the Energy Transition
Carbon Solutions has developed a new software package called 𝘚𝘊𝘖₂𝘛ᴾᴿᴼ that rapidly and accurately screens for CO2 storage, CO2-geothermal, and energy storage opportunities. 𝘚𝘊𝘖₂𝘛ᴾᴿᴼ uses a unique and transformational approach to simulate CO2 sequestration in saline aquifers that couples the dynamic physics of CO2 injection and storage associated with full-physics models with the speed of an integrated assessment model. 𝘚𝘊𝘖₂𝘛ᴾᴿᴼ is a fast-running, machine learning tool trained using tens of thousands reservoir model simulations. 𝘚𝘊𝘖₂𝘛ᴾᴿᴼ can be used standalone to review storage sites, or in tandem with 𝘚𝘪𝘮𝘊𝘊𝘚ᴾᴿᴼ for a full perspective on CO₂ capture, transport, and storage. 𝘚𝘊𝘖₂𝘛ᴾᴿᴼ is able to rapidly evaluate potential CO₂ storage sites, including accurate screening-level storage capacities, injection rates, number of wells, and integrated sequestration costs. The tool has advanced, unmatched capabilities, including:
- Dynamic CO₂ storage capacity, injection rates, and plume evolution.
- Advanced sequestration economics.
- Detailed uncertainty and sensitivity analysis.
- Market assessment and project feasibility calculations.
𝘚𝘊𝘖₂𝘛ᴾᴿᴼ has appeared in half-a-dozen peer-reviewed journal papers. See the links to the papers below to learn more. And reach out anytime if you would like a copy of any of the papers.

- 𝘚𝘊𝘖₂𝘛 Part VI: A geospatial cost comparison of CO2 plume geothermal (CPG) power and geologic CO2 storage (link).
Carbon Solutions has produced the first-ever nationwide estimates of realistic CO2 storage potential and sequestration costs using the 𝘚𝘊𝘖₂𝘛 software and proprietary sequestration geology.
