CO2-opslag kan leiden tot vervuiling van drinkwater

Leaks from carbon dioxide injected deep underground to help fight climate change could bubble up into drinking water aquifers near the surface, driving up levels of contaminants in the water tenfold or more in some places, according to a study by Duke University scientists.

Romm: 'This problem may not turn out to be fatal to CCS, but might well limit the places where sequestration is practical - either because the geology is problematic or the site is simply too close to the water supply of a large population.'
