  • Managing carbon emissions: understanding the UK landscape

    Ensuring the development of low-carbon generation and the regulation of greenhouse gas production is one of the many priorities for UK government. As such, several policies have been introduced to help manage greenhouse gas levels, including the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and the Smart Grid Forum. The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) ...

  • Nature Energy article: ‘Open discussion of negative emissions is urgently needed’

    At the moment, nearly all model-based scenarios that limit global warming to 2 °C or less use negative CO2 emission technologies (NETs), particularly bio-energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS). Still, investments in these technologies continue to be relatively small, and concerns are being raised regarding the large-scale application of such technologies. If no explicit policy ...

  • CO2 Capture from Ambient Air by Crystallization with a Guanidine Sorbent

    Carbon capture and storage is an important strategy for stabilizing the increasing concentration of atmospheric CO2 and the global temperature. A possible approach toward reversing this trend and decreasing the atmospheric CO2 concentration is to remove the CO2 directly from air (direct air capture). Herein we report a simple aqueous guanidine sorbent that captures ...

  • Carbon Sequestration: Addressing Climate Change and Food Security through Sustainable Agriculture

    Introduction To meet the demands of a growing, increasingly urban global population (approximately 9 billion by 2050), the World Bank calculates that global food production must increase by 70% in the next 35 years. This is a great challenge not only because of the volume of food that must be produced, but because agricultural conditions will not remain constant or predicable ...

  • North Dakota To Study Technical And Economic Feasibility Of CCS

    On August 10, 2016, Red Trail Energy, LLC, a North Dakota ethanol producer, announced that it, along with the Energy & Environmental Research Center, had been awarded $490,000 to examine the integration of carbon capture and storage (CCS). The study will consist of installing and ...

  • WESPS continue to deliver

    Compliance with the increasingly stringent air pollution regulations of recent years is not the only reason forwardthinking industry leaders are adopting more sophisticated gas cleaning and air pollution control strategies. The desire to achieve higher performance efficiencies, control costs in a competitive marketplace, and stay ahead of the regulatory compliance curve is another driver of ...

  • 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 ...

  • Carbon capture plans need urgent aid

    Governments may no longer be investing in the capture of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. But a new study says that doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea. It argues that the world just needs to think harder and spend more to make the technology work because, to contain climate change, it may prove the only realistic and affordable way to dramatically reduce carbon ...

  • Delaying substantial emission reductions limits climate policy choices

    If fast and substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is postponed further, there are fewer options available to stay below the 2 °C warming target for the end of the century. Delayed action is likely to require measures that remove CO2 from the atmosphere by planting forests and using bioenergy in combination with carbon capture and storage. The latter technique ...

  • How climate risk is like a flaming truck barreling toward us, and why it’s time to hit the brakes

    A narrow escape from a catastrophic car accident sheds new light on an even bigger threat. It was a normal Saturday afternoon, with the promise of fun: My wife, Mary, and I were driving into New York City for dinner, drinks and a show with friends. I set the cruise control at 72 miles per hour, thinking I should be cautious because it was pouring ...

  • 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 ...

  • Commercial boost for firms that suck carbon from air

    It has long been regarded as one of the more blue-skies solutions to climate change. Now two companies have vastly increased their capability to suck carbon dioxide from the air. One, based in Canada, plans to convert captured CO2 into diesel to fuel buses; the other, in Switzerland, will sell it on to a firm that uses CO2 to boost crop growth in greenhouses. The ...

  • Investment in resource innovation needed for a key tech ecosystem

    We are living in a time of major transitions, and we are at the beginning of a new innovation supercycle. With more than 9,000 technology companies currently calling British Columbia home, there’s no shortage of support and enthusiasm for our burgeoning hub for startup ventures. But while we pride ourselves on cultivating new businesses at the startup level, we are neglecting to provide ...

  • Carbon capture is a mirage for poor nations

    The world is witnessing a coal renaissance. While public attention remains focused on the progress of the clean energy sector, a ‘black revolution’ of coal power stations is taking shape in the developing world, in particular in Asia, ...

  • Energy Technology Perspectives 2015

    As climate negotiators work towards a deal that would limit the increase in global temperatures, interest is growing in the essential role technology innovation can and must play in enabling the transition to a low-carbon energy system. Indeed, recent success stories clearly indicate that there is significant and untapped potential for accelerating innovation in clean technologies if proper ...

  • The hidden risk of negative emissions technologies

    Strategies for removing carbon from the atmosphere all have down sides. The biggest? Their ability to lull us into complacency. The best way to keep your floor dry is to avoid spilling a bucket of water onto the floor, rather than to deliberately tip the bucket and then develop technologies to dry the floor. The same is true of greenhouse gases: We need to prevent their ...

    capture performance of CaO–based sorbents obtained from various precursors

    The effects of pore morphology and crystal structure of CaO–based sorbents derived from various precursors were investigated to elucidate the property dependence of CaO–based sorbent performance for cyclic CO2 capture. The results indicate that CO2 capture capacity of the first carbonate looping cycle is dependent on the specific surface ...

    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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • FTIR gas analyzer supports carbon capture research - Case study

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...
