The proposed module applies to select projects applying the Methodology Framework for Carbon Capture and Storage. It applies to project activities that store CO2 by injecting water-dissolved CO2 into reactive, igneous rock. The proposed module quantifies the net amount of CO2 chemically bound through mineralization and that remains as a dissolved phase in the reservoir fluid with the ongoing mineralization process.
