This paper covers several potential methods using mineral incorporation (a.k.a. mineralization) to store and/or permanently sequester carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse gas (GHG). Section 2 is about a simple process that will combine two hazardous industrial wastes, alkaline mineral waste and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process creates a stable mineral that can be safely buried or perhaps used in long-lived structures. Others that are described in section 3 are similar methods already in use.
