Nice. I was just reading about that tech with the rocks as a possible sequestration technique. I think one of the rocks that can do this is basalt, which exists in large quantities and many places. So the idea was that you could inject the CO2 into the basalt.

First we need to get emissions to plummet, but tech like this would allow us to still emit some GHG for processes where it's really hard to find alternatives.
