  • Guidelines for carbon dioxide capture, transport, and storage

    This publication is the collective product of a carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) stakeholder process convened by the World Resources Institute (WRI) between February 2006 and September 2008. The unique perspectives and expertise that each participant brought to the process were invaluable to ensuring the development of a robust and broadly accepted set of ...

  • Water equivalent method for city phytostructure of Indonesia

    This paper proposed a simple method and rapid to carry out for organizing city phytostructure. Carbon dioxide sequestration was addressed and referred to population number instead of city area. The unit storage of carbon dioxide, which was nothing less than greenspace area, was determined using equivalent method of determining unit storage of water. For various population number (P) of city area ...

  • Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide and Indoor Air Quality

    Chances are that unless you are hot or cold – or if you smell something funny – you probably never think about indoor air quality. However, scientists know that gases in the air that you cannot see or smell can still affect your health. Carbon Monoxide The most dangerous gas most of us will ever face is carbon monoxide (CO). Not normally occurring in nature, this ...

  • Carbon dioxide capture and storage: Priorities for development

    Oil, coal and natural gas will remain the world’s dominant sources of energy over the next decades, resulting in unsustainable levels of carbon dioxide emissions. This trend can be reversed only via a near revolution in the way we produce, transform and consume energy. Concerted global action is urgently needed to increase investment in energy technology solutions. Carbon dioxide capture and ...

  • Comparing policy, regulations and institutions for geological disposal of radioactive waste and carbon dioxide

    This paper compares the policy, regulatory and institutional (PRI) settings of Radioactive Waste (RW) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) disposal for selected countries. This comparison is premised on the following arguments: (a) the policy/political acceptance of nuclear power and coal power with Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology to redress the climate change challenge will ...

  • An approach to assess risks of carbon geological storage technology

    Carbon geological storage (CGS) projects are designed to securely store carbon dioxide (CO2) for thousands of years. Because of this, there are several studies to evaluate the potential risks of long–term storage of CO2 in geological formations. This paper presents a new method for the qualitative risk assessment of CGS: the risk ...

  • Comparison of monitoring programmes of ultimate disposal facilities for radioactive waste and carbon dioxide

    Reliable and cost–effective monitoring is an important part of making geological repositories safe, effective, and acceptable for radioactive waste disposal and carbon dioxide (CO2) storage. The major objectives of monitoring should include the evolution of disposal systems compared to the baseline data of the undisturbed site, as well as the validation of the assumptions and ...

  • Comparative assessment of ultimate disposal facilities for carbon dioxide and radioactive waste: overview and synthesis

    The world community is seeking to move towards cleaner sources of energy for electricity generation to protect the environment. In addition to renewables, nuclear power and fossil fuel plants with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) are potential clean energy sources, if their wastes, i.e., radioactive material and CO2, are ...

  • Safety/risk assessment methodologies of deep geological facilities: results from a cross–national comparison

    Any geological disposal/storage facility must prove its safe performance prior to licensing, regardless of whether the compound is solid radioactive waste (RW) or gaseous carbon dioxide (CO2). The disposal/storage facility is considered safe if it meets the relevant safety standards and proves its reliable safe performance over defined timescales. This paper presents a ...

  • Micromeritics Introduces the Selective Adsorption Analyzer 8100

    Combining Micromeritics’ widely recognized knowledge of gas adsorption with the tried and tested technology of PID Eng and Tech, a company recently acquired by Micromeritics and renowned for its microreactor and pilot plant technology, it delivers reliable, selective adsorption data for gas/vapor mixtures by mass balance. A highly efficient tool for evaluating the performance of ...

  • Public perception of ultimate disposal facilities for radioactive waste and carbon dioxide: results from a cross–national comparison

    The public perception of ultimate disposal facilities for Radioactive Waste (RW) and carbon dioxide (CO2) is crucial for the selection, construction and operation of such sites. This paper presents a cross–national comparison of the public perceptions of ultimate disposal facilities for RW and CO2 in the Czech Republic, Germany and ...

  • The purpose of the Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) Guidelines is not to make a case for or against CCS, but rather to develop practical considerations for demonstrating and deploying CCS technologies.

    CCS is a broad term that encompasses a number of technologies that can be used to capture CO2 from point sources, such as power plants and other industrial facilities; compress it; transport it mainly by pipeline to suitable locations; and inject it into deep subsurface geological formations for indefinite isolation from the atmosphere. CCS is a critical option in the portfolio of solutions ...

  • Comparison of cost estimates of final disposal facilities for carbon dioxide and high–level radioactive waste

    This paper presents new research and new cost calculations for carbon dioxide (CO2) disposal in Cuba and Lithuania, as well as lessons from the comparative assessment of CO2 and high–level Radioactive Waste (RW) disposal costs in several countries. Nuclear power and CO2 Capture and Disposal (CCD) ...

  • 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 ...
