Exascale Application Project Targets Carbon Capture and Storage

August 15, 2022

Carbon capture and storage technologies are promising approaches for reducing CO2 emissions, but one of the biggest challenges in deploying them is the scale-up from laboratory design to industrial scale. The MFIX-Exa software subproject of the DOE’s Exascale Computing Project is helping achieve that scaling using the AMReX software framework developed at Berkeley Lab. Read More »
