    capture by absorption: a review

    CO2 capture by absorption requires solvents which can meet performance criteria such as fast absorption rate, high CO2 loading capacity, low regeneration energy, low degradation rate, low corrosiveness, low environmental impact and low solvent cost. The development of a suitable solvent is central for design of decarbonised power plants ...

  • The complex issues of carbon sink: a critical overview

    The aim of the paper is to offer a systemic overview about some critical and interdependent relations among carbon offset, carbon sequestration and carbon stock. Rooting in the complexity perspective, the work discusses some relevant measurement methods and financial issues related to the land use - land use change forestry (LULUCF) applied under Kyoto Protocol rules. There are uncertainties on ...

  • Development and testing of a European Union –wide farm‐level carbon calculator

    Direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture accounted for around 10% of total European Union (EU) emissions in 2010. To reduce farming‐related GHG emissions, appropriate policy measures and supporting tools for promoting low‐carbon farming practices may be efficacious. This paper presents the methodology and testing results of a new EU‐wide farm‐level carbon footprint calculator. ...

  • Energy-efficient stirred-tank photobioreactors for simultaneous carbon capture and municipal wastewater treatment

    Algal based wastewater treatment (WWT) technologies are attracting renewed attention because they couple energy-efficient sustainable treatment with carbon capture, and reduce the carbon footprint of the process. A low-cost energy-efficient mixed microalgal culture-based pilot WWT system, coupled with carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration, was investigated. The 21 L stirred-tank photobioreactors ...

  • Non–Darcy displacement in linear composite and radial aquifer during CO

    sequestration

    This paper presents Buckley–Leverett type analytical solutions for non–Darcy displacement of two immiscible fluids in linear and radial composite porous media. High velocity or non–Darcy flow commonly occurs in the vicinity of the wellbore because of smaller flowing cross–sectional areas. However, the effect of such non–Darcy flow has been traditionally ignored. To examine the physical behaviour ...

  • 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, ...

  • Voluntary carbon market and its contributions to sustainable development: analysis of the Monte Pascoal-Pau Brazil ecological corridor

    This paper aims to analyse the co–benefits of reforestation projects developed in the voluntary carbon market based on the analysis of a single case study: the ecological corridor project Monte Pascoal-Pau Brazil, the first forest restoration project in Latin America to receive the seal climate community and biodiversity (CCB). To achieve this purpose, the research combined: i) primary ...

  • Efficiency of carbon sequestration by added reactive nitrogen in ocean fertilisation

    Addition of limiting nutrients to the surface waters of the deep ocean will lead to increased photosynthesis and associated biological productivity. Some of carbon taken up by phytoplankton will sink to the deep ocean, providing sequestration of carbon in the deep ocean. This paper considers nitrogen as the added nutrient and determines the losses in this sequestration process, taking into ...

  • Evaluating the energy and the carbon stored from tropical acacias: the first steps

    Because of their relevance as a source of energy as woodfuel, carbon storage capacity and their environmental characteristics in ecosystems, tropical leguminous trees are suitable for their management on plantations to produce biomass for energy or carbon sequestration for climate change mitigation. The main purpose of this paper is to present the results of a research project to develop a ...
