Overview of particles collected at the field site (here, at an injection temperature of \(90\,^{\circ }\hbox {C}\)): low particle load on the filters with pore sizes of \(10\,\upmu \hbox {m}\) to \(1\,\upmu \hbox {m}\) (see picture 1–4) due to the \(\hbox {CO}_{2}\) addition. Only filters with \(0.1\,\upmu \hbox {m}\) pore sizes had a significant particle load (see picture 5). Mostly rounded particles are visible at pore sizes of 1–\(10\,\upmu \hbox {m}\) (see red circles). Pore sizes of \(0.1\,\upmu \hbox {m}\) showed a muddy matrix, and no crystals can be identified
