  • Carbon capture plans need urgent aid

    Governments may no longer be investing in the capture of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. But a new study says that doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea. It argues that the world just needs to think harder and spend more to make the technology work because, to contain climate change, it may prove the only realistic and affordable way to dramatically reduce carbon ...

  • Feasibility Study of Using Brine for Carbon Dioxide Capture

    ABSTRACT A laboratory-scale reactor was developed to evaluate the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from a gas into a liquid as an approach to control greenhouse gases emitted from fixed sources. CO2 at 5–50% concentrations was passed through a gas-exchange membrane and transferred ...

  • Anaerobic degradation of carbon capture reclaimer MEA waste

    The anaerobic biodegradation of reclaimer MEA (monoethanolamine) waste (MEAw) with easily degradable co-substrates was investigated in a laboratory-scale bioreactor at room temperature during a 160 d experimental run. The reactor that was constructed with three phases to facilitate attached biofilm and suspended biomass retention for degradation of the complex and challenging MEAw performed ...

  • FTIR gas analyzer supports carbon capture research - Case study

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...

  • Regulating carbon capture and storage in the European union: An economic and legal analysis

    Capture of CO2 produced during electricity and heat generation and its subsequent geological storage is receiving increased attention in the discussion about emission reductions. This commentary discusses the importance of temporal and spatial system boundaries for competition among different CO2 abatement options in the context of the European Emission Trading Scheme. Referring to the recent ...

  • Capture of carbon dioxide from flue gas using solid regenerable sorbents

    Carbon dioxide emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels are a significant factor in global climate change. Large stationary sources such as coal-fired electric generating plants are likely to be the most cost-effective targets for carbon dioxide capture. At present, liquid amine-based scrubbing systems are the only processes available for this application. Processes based on regenerable ...

  • Carbon capture and storage: settling the German coal vs. climate change dispute?

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an innovation that promises to enable the low Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions coal power station. However, the technology is still under development and issues such as economic viability, environmental safety, public acceptance and system integration remain unresolved at present. We analyse the viewpoints and strategies of major political and economic actors ...

  • Energy-efficient stirred-tank photobioreactors for simultaneous carbon capture and municipal wastewater treatment

    Algal based wastewater treatment (WWT) technologies are attracting renewed attention because they couple energy-efficient sustainable treatment with carbon capture, and reduce the carbon footprint of the process. A low-cost energy-efficient mixed microalgal culture-based pilot WWT system, coupled with carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration, was investigated. The 21 L stirred-tank photobioreactors ...

  • Climate Strategy with Co2 Capture from the Air

    Abstract It is physically possible to capture CO2 directly from the air and immobilize it in geological structures. Air capture differs from conventional mitigation in three key aspects. First, it removes emissions from any part of the economy with equal ease or difficulty, so its cost provides an absolute cap on the cost of mitigation. Second, it permits reduction in concentrations faster ...

  • Exergy analysis of the solar thermochemical cycle for capturing CO2 from air

    This paper presents exergy analysis of the novel solar thermochemical cycle for CO2 capture from ambient air. The exergy balance, the degree of the thermodynamic perfection, the influence coefficient and the exergy efficiency are determined for every element of the system. The proposed system has rather low exergy efficiency of 4.8%, mainly owing to the primary purpose of this system to capture ...

  • TurboScrubber® & TurboStripper® ‘TURBOCC’ Technology, for Flue Gas Cleaning & Carbon Capture System for Enhanced Plant Growth

    The plant would be supplied in a number of preassembled skid mounted packages for installation and connection on site. Typically these packages would comprise:  TurboScrubber®, water sump, recirculation pumps (run & standby), local water circulation pipework, forced or induced draft flue gas fan and local flue gas ductwork.  TurboStripper®, water sump, recirculation ...

  • Capturing the fugitives: Reducing methane emissions from natural gas

    The rapid expansion of natural gas development in the United States has been a double-edged sword. While natural gas supporters are quick to point out its economic benefits and green attributes—natural gas produces roughly half the carbon dioxide emissions of coal during combustion—this isn’t the whole story. Natural gas comes with environmental consequences, including risks to ...

  • The Chemical Route to a Carbon Dioxide Neutral World

    Excessive CO2 emissions in the atmosphere from anthropogenic activity can be divided into point sources and diffuse sources. The capture of CO2 from flue gases of large industrial installations and its conversion into fuels and chemicals with fast catalytic processes seems technically possible. Some emerging technologies are already being demonstrated on an industrial scale. Others are still ...

  • The “Social cost of carbon” and climate change policy

    Economist Frank Ackerman has called the “social cost of carbon” the most important number you never heard of. What is the social cost of carbon, where do the numbers come from, and why should policymakers take care when using them? The Obama Administration (and the Bush Administration before it) uses the SCC to assess the benefits of regulations that would limit emissions of carbon ...

  • Climate change and a European low-carbon energy system

    Summary This report presents an assessment of possible greenhouse gas emission reduction pathways made feasible by global action and a transition to a low-carbon energy system in Europe by 2030. It analyses trends and projections for emissions of greenhouse gases and the development of underlying trends in the energy sector. It also describes the ...

  • Control of Mercury Emissions from Coal-fired Electric Utility Boilers

    During combustion, the mercury (Hg) in coal is volatilized and converted to elemental mercury (Hg°) vapor in the high temperature regions of coal-fired boilers. As the flue gas is cooled, a series of complex reactions begin to convert Hg° to ionic mercury (Hg2T) compounds and/or Hg compounds (Hgp) that are in a solid-phase at flue gas cleaning temperatures or Hg that is adsorbed onto the ...

  • The awkward, realistic choices on low carbon electricity

    We must be guided by engineering reality, costs and markets, not emotion. Viewpoint from James Smith, Chairman, Carbon Trust As the public debate on securing our future energy needs continues to heat up, one thing is certain.  Kicking the fossil fuel habit will be hard. Over two billion people in the developing world need more energy. Even with major improvements in energy efficiency ...
