Geologiskt forum 105 & 108
Erik is a dedicated writer of articles to Geologiskt forum, the popular science magazine from the Swedish Geological Society (Geologiska föreningen). This year has resulted in two articles, one about his trip to Oman, where they had an excellent field guide in Peter Keleman, and a second together with me about the CarbFix project in Iceland, where I did my PhD project. Both articles concern CO2 sequestration and how natural processes can inspire scientists and industry to turn these natural CO2 sequestration processes into large-scale industrial processes as is the case for CarbFix. Oman has a large potential for industrial CO2 sequestration, just like Iceland thanks to a large supply of mafic and ultramafic rocks, but has so far decided not to use it.
