During 2009 and 2010 the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, operated by Battelle Memorial Institute, evaluated a project where CO2 from the Boise Inc pulp plant in Wallula, Washington state in the US would be stored in a nearby basalt formation. The CO2 would be separated from the combustion of black liquor (not gasification as in project number 10) and the separation technology would be provided by Fluor Corporation. The project was cancelled after not being selected for further US Department of Energy funding.
