Abstract

Disposal in the sea of carbon dioxide released from power stations A. Q. Malik Department of Physics, University of Brunei Darussalam, Jalan Tungku Link, Brunei Abstract Substantial amounts of flue gases are released into the atmosphere from industries and power plants fired either by coal or gas. The present study concerns the possibility of preventing C02 emissions from gas-fired power stations located in Brunei Darussalam from polluting the atmosphere. After extraction from the emission, the gas can be compressed and dissolved into seawater, which increases the density of the solution (seawater plus compressed C02 ). The solution can be injected in the sea where it would be transported by currents to deep water that provides a retention time of hundreds of years. In this study, the disposal of C02 in seawater is simulated using two computer packages CORMIX 1 & 2. Two different options (single and multiple ports) are considered. Optimum configurations for the disposal of C02 into the sea for
