Can rocks be used to store CO2?

    Good question, Adenbishop.  The answer is yes, but not just any rock.  There is a specific rock called peridotite that produces calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate when it comes into contact with carbon dioxide.  The rock already absorbs CO2 naturally, but scientists think they can create a way to speed up that process.

    Hope this helps!
