Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Scrubbers News

  • The refrigerant eater

    The cost for the decomposing of refrigerants coming from end of life refrigerators and other cooling equipment are rising more and more. Three, four or even more Euro’s per KG are becoming daily expenses for the recyclers of refrigerators. These cost are more and more effecting the financial results of the recycling companies in a negative way. We also have to consider that a growing ...

  • Are Canadians missing the mark on energy and environmental regulations?

    Policymakers have encumbered Canadians with superfluous and needlessly costly environmental regulations that do little to improve the environment, finds a new study released by the Fraser Institute. “From light bulb bans to plastic bag bans, governments across the country have implemented inefficient policies that put unnecessary constraints on Canadians’ ...

  • New Compact Oxesav improves level of ethanol and liquid droplet capture in existing ethanol plant scrubbers to significantly reduce operating and compliance costs

    Bionomic Industries, a worldwide leading manufacturer of cutting edge scrubber system technology, has recently developed a device that improves the level of ethanol removal and entrainment capture in existing ethanol plant wet scrubbers designed to control vented fermentation off-gases consisting of ethanol and VOC vapors. In many cases, the original CO2 scrubbers installed as part of the gas ...

  • Artificial Cooling Tricky Topic for Climate Panel

    It's Plan B in the fight against climate change: cooling the planet by sucking heat-trapping CO2 from the air or reflecting sunlight back into space. Called geoengineering, it's considered mad science by opponents. Supporters say it would be foolish to ignore it, since plan A - slashing carbon emissions from fossil fuels - is moving so slowly. The U.N.'s expert panel on climate change is under ...

  • The Promises and Perils of Geoengineering

    Geoengineering, by definition, is any deliberate large-scale manipulation of the planetary environment to counteract human-caused climate change. As the planet continues to warm, the potential solutions offered by geoengineering are tempting, and several serious projects are actively being pursued. In the latest edition of the Worldwatch Institute's (

  • DEEPSEA CHALLENGE - CO2 analysis seven miles deep

    At almost seven miles down, carbon dioxide management is critical for life support. On 26th March 2012, with James Cameron at 35,756 feet under the waves on the seabed of the Mariana Trench, he and the DEEPSEA CHALLENGE team needed real-time live data on the levels of oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), air temperature and humidity in the sub. Those four readings from a specially modified Geotech ...

  • Tiny mesh rings hold the key to solving deep sea dilemma

    A UK engineering firm is helping to develop a way of keeping the air clean and safe in deep sea submarines. Croft Engineering Services is working with two of the country’s leading universities to help create a chemical-free system of removing carbon dioxide from the air inside underwater capsules. As people breathe, they exhale carbon dioxide which needs to be taken ...

  • New process removes sulfur components, carbon dioxide from power plant emissions

    The Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has developed a reusable organic liquid that can pull harmful gases such as carbon dioxide or sulfur dioxide out of industrial emissions from power plants. The process could directly replace current methods and allow power plants to capture double the amount of harmful gases in a way that uses no water, less energy and saves money. ...

  • Coal/Biomass combination with CO2 capture greener than renewables but not most eco-efficient

    If a combination of coal and biomass provided the energy source for electricity and the CO2 from the combustion was captured, there would be more carbon extracted from the atmosphere than returned to it. The best global warming reducer would be a 100 percent biomass boiler with 90 percent CO2 capture, but there is not enough biomass to generate the electricity the world needs.  However, a ...

  • Combating climate change

    Public support for more aggressive action against climate change is growing around the world. For example, environmental issues have historically taken a back seat in U.S. elections, but that appears to be changing as climate change moved to the front burner for the candidates vying for the presidency in 2008.  The Western Regional Climate Action Initiative (WCI), launched by several U.S. ...
