Washington state’s Department of Ecology has just granted the permit for the world’s first pilot test of carbon capture and sequestration in continental flood basalt near a paper mill in Wallula. With the permit approved, the Wallula pilot will start injecting 1,000 tons of CO 2 into a 4,000-foot well at Wallula, Washington, by January. It will take about two weeks.
