Clark, Deirdre E.; et al. 2020: “CarbFix2: CO2 and H2S Mineralization during 3.5 years of Continuous Injection into Basaltic Rocks at More than 250 °C.”

Clark, Deirdre E., Eric H. Oelkers, Ingvi Gunnarsson, Bergur Sigfússon, Sandra Ó. Snæbjörnsdóttir, Edda S. Aradóttir, and Sigurður R. Gíslason. 2020: “CarbFix2: CO2 and H2S Mineralization during 3.5 years of Continuous Injection into Basaltic Rocks at More than 250 °C.” Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta 279 (June): 45–66. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gca.2020.03.039.

‌"The CarbFix method was upscaled at the Hellisheiði geothermal power plant to inject and mineralize the plant’s CO2 and H2S emissions in June 2014. This approach first captures the gases by their dissolution in water, and the resulting gas-charged water is injected into subsurface basalts. "
