DOE Techline: DOE Partner Begins Injecting 50,000 Tons of Carbon Dioxide in Michigan Basin

February 27, 2009

Building on an initial injection project of 10,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO₂) into a Michigan geologic formation, a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) team of regional partners has begun injecting 50,000 additional tons into the formation, which is believed capable of storing hundreds of years worth of CO₂, a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change.
