Two years after Iceland's Hellisheidi power plant started its CarbFix Project, the facility can now successfully turn carbon dioxide into solid basalt rock for eternity.

Previous studies and the CarbFix project in Iceland reinforced that CO2 can be converted into solid form and stop it from merging with the atmosphere. Almost all the CO2 injected since the pilot was mineralized and turned into rock and, as a result, cleans the air of harmful emissions that exacerbates global warming.

Researchers and engineers involved in the CarbFix Project — from the University of Iceland, France's National Centre for Scientific Research, Columbia University in the United States, and Reykjavik Energy — have transformed the Hellisheidi power plant, the world's largest geothermal facility, into their own laboratory as they convert carbon dioxide into rock.
