Fundamental properties of CO2 mixtures - SP1

Research Scientist

The primary objective of SP1 is to gain knowledge on fundamental properties and behaviour of relevant CO2 mixtures.

The objective will be achieved by collecting existing data, acquiring new data and developing accurate property models. Furthermore transient flow dynamics, chemical reactivity and corrosion, as well as physical interactions with materials at various storage sites will be studied. The knowledge of fundamental properties and behaviour of CO2 mixtures gained under SP1 will provide input to SP2 and SP3.
