This seems relevant.

Apparently they injected carbon dioxide, and a mixture of carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide, into a water bearing basalt formation at depth.
Apparently essentially all the carbon dioxide was calcified by accelerated weathering-type processes inside two years.

This has some interesting implications for carbon capture and storage which I think are immediately obvious.

Excellent! More than relevant, IMNSHO, E, but crucial.

Which furthers the case for a transitioning strategy given the economic impacts of new nuclear power on carbon energy industries leveraging co-located SMR/TMSR at carbon-fired plants to provide make-up for CCS?
