  • Crediting co2 sequestration – An alternative approach to integrating CCS into the EU ETS

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies are currently discussed as a promising measure by stakeholders in the power industry sector, who see it as an opportunity to both continue using fossil fuels and to comply with the challenges of climate protection by reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Initial demonstration projects have already been launched.1 According to the European Commission, it ...

  • CO
    hydrates as a climate change mitigation strategy: definition of stability zones in the Portuguese deep offshore

    Storage of CO2 as hydrates in sub–seabed sediments has been indicated as an alternative solution for the geological storage of CO2, suitable for offshore areas where large ocean depths and low temperatures exist at short distance from the shore. This paper presents the works conducted to identify the ...

  • Analysis of national responses under Article 21 of the EU ETS Directive in 2015

    Synthesising Member State reporting on the application of the EU ETS Directive The European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) is one of the key climate policy instruments that has been implemented in the European Union (EU) to achieve its objectives of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in a cost-effective manner. The EU ETS covers certain activities that emit carbon dioxide ...

  • Monitoring Gas Emissions from Volcanoes to Predict Volcanic Activity

    To understand and predict the behaviour of volcanoes an increasing number of scientists are combining geological monitoring and geochemical models. By measuring and monitoring the prevalence of gases like CO2, scientists hope to be able to better predict the likelihood of volcanic eruptions. In 2010 Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted, releasing 250 million ...

  • Storing Heat Underground

    Underground thermal energy storage (UTES) is a system that uses inter-seasonal heat storage, storing excess heat from the summer for use in winter heating, and the cooling potential from winter for cooling in summer. A cost-effective, low-energy and low-risk proven renewable technology, UTES reduces carbon emissions by up to 60% and is becoming an increasingly popular choice for residential, ...
