WORK PACKAGE 7:
Objective: The objective is to apply knowledge from WPs 1-6 to: 1) Design more energy- efficient electrochemical systems tailoring their porous transport layer, 2) Describe the role of buoyancy in CO2 sequestration in reservoirs and 3) Predict hydraulic fracturing in three dimensions.
Principal Investigator WP7: Professor Signe Kjelstrup. Partners: Profs. Dick Bedeaux, Pietro Ballone, Eirik Grude Flekkøy, Dag Dysthe, Alex Hansen, Bjørnar Sandnes, Stéphane Santucci, Renaud Toussaint, Øivind Wilhelmsen. PhD-candidates: Marco Sauermoser.
