  • Beyond CO2lonialism: the potential for fair trade certification to embrace voluntary carbon offsets

    Carbon offset projects are a short-term solution to a long-term problem. Some offset projects cause immediate harm to the people and environment of developing countries while others provide questionable returns in terms of actual carbon capture and storage. Finally, carbon offset projects create barriers to industrialisation for developing countries. All of these challenges must be addressed if ...

  • The trouble with angels: carbon capture and storage hurdles and solutions

    This article examines the challenges to commercial deployment of carbon capture and storage using geologic sequestration. The authors argue that CCS will never become a reality without early federal investment in research and development, a uniform federal regulatory framework, and a framework to address the currently unknown and unquantifiable liabilities. They suggest a model similar to the ...

  • Capture of carbon dioxide by solid amine sorbents

    The reaction of tetraethylorthrosilcate (TEOS) with y-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTS) has produced stable solid amine sorbents for the capture of carbon dioxide. The resulting amine-enriched silicon sorbent (SBA-15) has been proven to be competitive with existing environmental CO2 controlled life sorbents based on the immobilised amine technology. XPS analysis has indicated that the amine ...

  • The CO2 and SO2 capture capability of two Greek limestones during repeated thermal cycles

    In the present study, two Greek limestones from the Megalopolis and Florina areas were used to capture CO2 and SO2. The regeneration ability and decay of the limestone samples were investigated through sorption-calcination cycles in a thermogravimetric analyser operated at ambient pressure. The effects of the sorption time (3, 8 and 30 min), reaction temperature (750°C and 850°C) and particle ...

  • Transboundary transportation of CO2 associated with carbon capture and storage projects

    International legal issues raised by Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) have received close attention in recent years, including important amendments being made to two international marine environment protection treaties – the global London Protocol 1 and the regional OSPAR Convention2 – to resolve their uncertain legal treatment of CO2 storage into the sub-seabed. To date, however, most published ...

  • Carbon capture is a mirage for poor nations

    The world is witnessing a coal renaissance. While public attention remains focused on the progress of the clean energy sector, a ‘black revolution’ of coal power stations is taking shape in the developing world, in particular in Asia, ...

  • The kinetics of carbon dioxide capture by solutions of piperazine and N-methyl piperazine

    In this paper, kinetics and mechanism of the reaction between CO2 and piperazine (PZ) or n-methyl piperazine (NMP) in aqueous and alcoholic solutions were investigated using direct stopped-flow technique under a range of temperatures (278, 288 and 298 K). The results show that the reactions follow a single termolecular reaction mechanism and the reaction rate between CO ...

  • Report: Investors conditionally ready to back CCS development

    The financial world may be ready to invest the development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects, provided certain pre-conditions are assured, according a recent report by the non-profit Climate Group and Ecofin Research Foundation (New York, NY). The report surveyed 30 private-sector capital providers on their views of the risks and returns of CCS development and found three basic ...

  • Carbon Capture & Storage: Becoming a regulatory reality in Europe

    In the article ―Carbon Capture and Storage: Becoming a Regulatory Reality in Europe, Meghan White examines the development of a legal framework for Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) as an important measure to achieve GreenHouse Gas (GHG) emissions restric-tions in Europe. The article begins with an overview of the technical aspects of CCS as well as the main policy initiatives that have promoted ...

  • INFORSE-Europe comments on EU Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan), COM(2007)723 of 22 November 2007

    INFORSE-Europe is concerned that the proposed SET-plan has a high focus on increased supportfor development of nuclear fission technologies with the so-called 'sustainable nuclear fission initiative' (to support development of a generation IV nuclear fission reactors). INFORSE-Europe is further concerned with the focus on carbon capture and storage as well as with the lack of focus on a number of ...

  • Storing carbon: options for liability risk management, financial responsibility

    The authors of this article say the technical complexity, economic impacts, social demand, and political challenges underpinning the deployment of carbon capture and storage technology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired electric power generation are daunting, but not unprecedented. In response to these challenges, the authors recommend the creation of a new “federal government ...

  • Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies and economic investment opportunities in the UK

    This article reviews the role played by carbon and capture (CCS) technologies in order to facilitate the transition to low-carbon emitting technologies in the medium-term. More precisely, we address the following central questions: how will the development of CCS technologies impact energy policies in order to yield to sustainable energy solutions? At what costs will pollution reductions be ...
