  • 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 ...

  • Combined cycles for CO2-capture with high efficiency

    The presented paper gives an overview on combined cycles for CO2-capture with high efficiency focussed on processes using a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC), because of the air separating ability of the SOFC-membrane. The SOFC-membrane is only permeable for oxygen ions, so the cathode exhaust gas is oxygen depleted air, which should be discharged to the atmosphere after recycling or using the heat ...

  • 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 ...

  • Using Open Path TDLAS CO2 Sensors for Carbon Capture and Storage Projects

    Public confidence in CCS projects worldwide is not very high. Many believe that CCS is not permanent storage, and at great expense to govermnents who are funding these projects. Effective monitoring and verification programs could go a long way to improve public perception.  Our Spectra-1 open path TDLAS gas sensor has shown very high accuracy in monitoring ambient CO2 levels. Better than ...

  • A summary of existing regulations and development opportunities for CO2 capture and storage

    Introduction This project was the result of co-operation between Canadian Standards Association (CSA), Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), Alberta Energy, Alberta Energy & Utilities Board (EUB), Saskatchewan Industry and Resources, and Saskatchewan Environment.  The main purpose of this collaboration was to produce recommendations for the further development of the CO2 Capture and Storage ...

  • Transboundary transportation of CO2 associated with carbon capture and storage projects

    International legal issues raised by Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) have received close attention in recent years, including important amendments being made to two international marine environment protection treaties – the global London Protocol 1 and the regional OSPAR Convention2 – to resolve their uncertain legal treatment of CO2 storage into the sub-seabed. To date, however, most published ...

  • 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, ...

  • The CO2 and SO2 capture capability of two Greek limestones during repeated thermal cycles

    In the present study, two Greek limestones from the Megalopolis and Florina areas were used to capture CO2 and SO2. The regeneration ability and decay of the limestone samples were investigated through sorption-calcination cycles in a thermogravimetric analyser operated at ambient pressure. The effects of the sorption time (3, 8 and 30 min), reaction temperature (750°C and 850°C) and particle ...

  • Laboratory scale tests of coal-based hydrogen production with CO2 capture in the aspect of clean coal technologies

    In the light of continuously increasing oil prices as well as stronger environmental regulations, an important issue becomes finding an alternative to fossil fuels. Scientists agree that hydrogen seems to be an ideal, price-competitive and environment-friendly future energy carrier. One of the most effective methods of hydrogen production is the process of steam gasification of coal to ...

  • Carbon capture could be costly and risky

    There’s bad news for those who think that carbon dioxide can be removed from the atmosphere and stored deep in the Earth’s rocks. Even if carbon capture is possible, sequestration in the rocks is fraught because the gas can find multiple ways to escape, according to a report by a team from Penn State University, US, in the International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control. Back in the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Liability and financial responsibility frameworks for carbon capture and sequestration

    Carbon dioxide capture and sequestration (CCS) is an important option for reducing CO2 emissions from human activities.  There is growing interest in CCS as renewable energy and energy efficiency alone are unlikely to deliver the emission reductions necessary to stabilize atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases by mid-century.1 CCS involves capturing CO2 generated from fossil fuel ...

  • Capture of carbon dioxide by solid amine sorbents

    The reaction of tetraethylorthrosilcate (TEOS) with y-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTS) has produced stable solid amine sorbents for the capture of carbon dioxide. The resulting amine-enriched silicon sorbent (SBA-15) has been proven to be competitive with existing environmental CO2 controlled life sorbents based on the immobilised amine technology. XPS analysis has indicated that the amine ...

  • High sensitivity CO2 monitor for CO2 geological sequestration efficiency monitoring

    Canadian prosperity is currently linked to revenue generated from processes that produce large volumes of greenhouse gasses as a by-product. Under evidence that the human fingerprint on our planet is in direct correlation to global climate change, the monitoring and control of greenhouse gas emissions has become a subject of recent focus among many sciences. Recently, legislation has been imposed ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • The kinetics of carbon dioxide capture by solutions of piperazine and N-methyl piperazine

    In this paper, kinetics and mechanism of the reaction between CO2 and piperazine (PZ) or n-methyl piperazine (NMP) in aqueous and alcoholic solutions were investigated using direct stopped-flow technique under a range of temperatures (278, 288 and 298 K). The results show that the reactions follow a single termolecular reaction mechanism and the reaction rate between CO ...
