CO2 hydrate formation and dissociation is crucial for hydrate-based CO2 capture and storage. Experimental and calculated phase equilibrium conditions of carbon dioxide (CO2) hydrate in porous medium were investigated in this study. Glass beads were used to form the porous medium. The experimental data were generated using a graphical method. The results indicated the decrease of pore size resulted in the increase of the equilibrium pressure of CO2 hydrate. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to investigate the priority formation site of CO2 hydrate in different porous media, and the results showed that the hydrate form firstly in BZ-02 glass beads under the same pressure and temperature. An improved model was used to predict CO2 hydrate equilibrium conditions, and the predictions showed good agreement with experimental measurements. View Full-Text
