  • Can we bury the carbon dioxide problem?

    Seriously — carbon capture and storage could be a game-changer. Mention “carbon capture and storage” — the process of trapping carbon dioxide produced in fossil-fuel burning or other industrial processes and burying it underground — in polite company, and you’re likely to be pounced on. It’s absurdly expensive. It can never be rolled ...

    Do you work with carbon dioxide (or CO2) in your industry? If so, then you may need a carbon dioxide monitor to check for gas leaks that could pose a hazard to your workplace safety. Learn common scenarios where carbon dioxide can leak and see how a CO2 detector can minimize your risk.  Industries Where CO2 Monitors Can Make a ...

  • NHS managers urged to meet carbon reduction targets

    New plan on sustainable health sets out the steps that NHS managers must follow to cut carbon emissions. NHS Managers in the UK will be handed a number of measures they need to take to meet the government's carbon reduction targets, which involves cuttings its carbon emissions by 10% by 2015. This is part of the new “Vision for Sustainable Health: A Route map” to be set out today. ...

  • Green supply chain management: the development of supply chain carbon maps

    In recent times, environmental thinking has become a prominent feature in the design of supply chain networks leading to the concepts of low carbon supply chains and green supply chain management. Understanding the sources and levels of emissions within the supply chain is the first step needed to fully design a low carbon supply chain. This paper helps to develop the concept of supply chain ...

  • An Overview of Terrestrial Sequestration of Carbon Dioxide: The United States Department of Energy`s Fossil Energy R&D Program

    Abstract Increasing concentrations of CO2 and other greenhouse gases (GHG) in the Earth's atmosphere have the potential to enhance the natural greenhouse effect, which may result in climatic changes. The main anthropogenic contributors to this increase are fossil fuel combustion, land use conversion, and soil cultivation. It is clear that overcoming the challenge of global climate change ...

  • Carbon capture and clusters

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS ) announcements in 2013 were quiet – yet the award of funding to the White Rose project in early December was an encouraging sign that UK CCS momentum remains undeterred, explains Sam Botterill, CCS Technical Manager, Energy Institute. Christmas did not only come early for the White Rose project, more commonly referred to as Drax Power’s CCS Project, ...

  • Forests for Carbon: Exploring forest carbon offsets in the U.S. South

    Southern U.S. forests remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in the form of carbon in leaves, roots, branches, trunks, soil, and woody debris and other plant litter through a process known as “carbon sequestration.” Through this process, southern forests and other woodlands play a role in regulating Earth’s climate and moderating the effects of global climate ...

  • The commercial deployment of carbon capture and storage technology

    One of the most significant impediments to a carbon dioxide capture and storage industry is not technical but legal-managing liabilities associated with the long-term geologic storage of carbon dioxide in reservoirs, particularly deep saline. There is no dedicated regulatory regime in place at either the federal or state level for capture and ...

  • Black Carbon – the elephant in the room!

    Traditionally, ambient particulates have been measured gravimetrically according to their size. However, in this article Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors, will demonstrate that the time has come to change or at least augment the way ambient particulates are monitored and regulated. Air Monitors has supplied most of the UK's ambient monitoring network, but Jim will explain why the ...

  • The potential of the ocean for the management of global warming

    The ocean represents a potential opportunity to store carbon dioxide from fossil fuel away from the atmosphere. Three carbon sequestration strategies are reviewed and the technical, legal and ethical issues that would follow from their widespread adoption are examined. Each of these strategies could play a significant role in mitigating the carbon dioxide increase in the atmosphere. The legal ...

  • Clear Skies and business certainty - The US administration’s new proposals to curb emissions of air pollutants and carbon dioxide endorse the principle of emissions trading but leave industry waiting for regulatory certainty.

    President Bush’s Global Climate Change and Clear Skies initiatives*, announced in February, end a lengthy cabinetlevel review of US emissions policy, but mark a new stage in the national policy debate over climate change and air quality regulations.  Since the president’s early refutation of the Kyoto Protocol and his statement of opposition to the inclusion of carbon dioxide (CO2) in power ...

  • Efficiency’s role in carbon cap-and-trade

    We hear a lot about how efficiency will play an increasingly important role as the United States undertakes efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. But how does that play out in a practical sense under cap-and-trade programs?The Offset Quality Initiative provides insight in a new white paper on greenhouse gas offsets: ...

  • Is technology the path to a lower carbon future?

    Advances in technology will keep energy supplies plentiful and affordable – enough to meet projected demand many times over — and help pave the way to a lower carbon energy mix, according to data published today in the BP Technology Outlook. “Technology opens up a whole range of possibilities across the energy sector,” said Bob Dudley, BP Group Chief Executive. “It ...

  • Rise in flights will outweigh carbon cuts

    The aviation industry insists that it is making only a tiny contribution to global warming, with just 2% of global carbon dioxide emissions coming from its aircraft. The problem is the speed at which aviation itself is growing. One aircraft builder believes the number of planes in service in 2011 will have doubled by 2031. Whatever ...
