Can CO2 be injected into rocks?

    Yes, it actually can be injected into rocks. In Germany, there is a formation called the Stuttgart Formation that is made of rock, and recently, scientists have been injecting CO2 into this structure. The purpose of this project is to begin to get answers about the future potential of underground CO2 storage. Some of the questions that these scientists are after are: 

    “What happens to deep groundwater displaced by the gas? How much pressure can be added to a reservoir without cracking its sealing rock? How much CO2 can leak through faults or failed wells?”
