  • Undersea storage for US carbon emissions

    Researchers are working hard on methods to mitigate, reduce or compensate for CO2 emissions. One of these, geological carbon sequestration, involves injecting CO2 into deep saline aquifers, or depleted oil and gas reservoirs so that it is not released into the atmosphere where it contributes to global warming. Now US researchers have found a potential new location for undersea CO2 storage, which ...

  • Reduced Emissions for Landfill Gas Installations

    The use of landfill gas as a source of renewable energy is increasing. For environmental and safety reasons, the owners of the waste storage sites have to strictly monitor and control the construction, operations, and emissions generated. Sulzer offers solutions to control these emissions within the limits given by the government. Landfill gas is similar to natural gas, but it is created by ...

  • Case study - Using thermal storage systems to reduce carbon emissions

    Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) systems have the potential to provide a significant tool for climate change mitigation. Using aquifers as a source for thermal energy can provide heating and cooling for houses, offices and other buildings E-USE (aq). In comparison to the use of fossil fuels, as well as providing up to 60% CO2 reductions, these systems are also more cost effective. The ...

  • Carbon Capture & Storage: CO2 Capture

    F7.1  | DOE and NETL’s Carbon Capture R&D Program Timothy Fout |  Project Manager, US DOE/ NETL With pending legislation or EPA action on greenhouse gas emissions, ...

  • Turning Carbon Emissions Into A Revenue Stream

    On the heels of the EPA’s new carbon rules proposed by President Obama on June 2, I wanted to take a closer look at a potential disruptive technological breakthrough: taking CO2 waste streams and turning them into saleable, value-added feedstocks. Certainly, the deployment of renewables, energy efficiency, smart grid, and energy storage technologies offer some of the most cost-effective ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Legislation: The New Directive on the Geological Storage of Carbon Dioxide

    Keywords: climate change, emissions trading, carbon capture, carbon transport, carbon storage, environ mental liability INTRODUCTION Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a controversial response to climate change, described variously as a 'magic bullet';1 'an uncomfortable but necessary option';2 'an expensive distraction';3 and a 'false hope'.4 The Directive on ...


  • U.S. headed for massive decline in carbon emissions*

    For years now, many members of Congress have insisted that cutting carbon emissions was difficult, if not impossible. It is not. During the two years since 2007, carbon emissions have dropped 9 percent. While part of this drop is from the recession, part of it is also from efficiency gains and from replacing coal with natural gas, wind, solar, and geothermal energy. The United States has ended a ...

  • Government ignores carbon emission reductions during recession

    DECC remains confident that existing plans to cut carbon emissions by 2020 will serve to achieve carbon targets, reports Envido. In its response to the first annual report from the independent Committee on Climate Change (CCC), the government accepted the committee's recommendation to effectively ignore carbon emission reductions that have been achieved as a result of the economic downturn. The ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Accounting Framework for Carbon Capture and Storage Projects

    Foreword Meeting the global challenge to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and avoid dangerous climate impacts requires deploying a portfolio of emission reduction technologies. We must both commit to broad and deep efficiencies in the way our societies’ consume energy and to significant increases in power supplies from low carbon energy sources. At the same time, it ...

  • Air pollution impacts from carbon capture and storage (CCS)

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) consists of the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from power plants and/or CO2-intensive industries such as refineries, cement, iron and steel, its subsequent transport to a storage site, and finally its injection into a suitable underground geological formation for the purposes of permanent storage. It is considered to be one of the medium term 'bridging ...

  • 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 ...

  • Carbon dioxide ocean and ground storage as a method of climate change mitigation

    Global warming-induced climate change is one of the significant civilisation threats of the modern times. Human-induced enhanced global warming, via the greenhouse effect resulting from high carbon dioxide emissions, poses a substantial danger to the environment we live in. Consequences of global warming can be devastating for the present, but mainly for the future generations. This paper reviews ...

  • 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 ...

  • Terrestrial biosphere carbon storage under alternative climate projections

    Abstract This study investigates commonalities and differences in projected land biosphere carbon storage among climate change projections derived from one emission scenario by five different general circulation models (GCMs). Carbon storage is studied using a global biogeochemical process model of vegetation and soil that includes dynamic treatment of changes in vegetation composition, a ...

  • Capturing King Coal: Deploying carbon capture and storage in the US at scale

    Climate change is no longer simply an environmental issue. It is rapidly becoming one of the defining forces of economic development in the 21st century. It will shape investment, technology deployment, and human development around the world, and no sector will be more profoundly affected than energy. Given the constraints that climate impacts bring, thriving in the evolving global energy market ...

  • Emissions reduction with Diesel blending

    Diesel technologies are develops by huge rates. Modification of cars with diesel engines make a half of the new cars sold in Europe. The black smoke, noisy engine operation and unpleasant smell remained far in the past. Today diesel engines present not only profitability, but also high capacity and worthy dynamic characteristics. Quality of fuel also is changed. The modern diesel blending has ...

  • CCS demonstration in developing countries: priorities for a financing mechanism for carbon dioxide capture and storage

    Climate Change and CCS In facing the challenge of mitigating global climate change, world leaders have acknowledged that no single solution exists, and therefore, a portfolio of carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction technologies and methods will be needed to successfully confront rising emissions. Due to their dependency on fossil fuels, the energy supply and industrial sectors are the greatest ...
