  • CO2 capture has to be addressed now

    Capturing CO2 and sequestering it underground is an attractive longer term option for greenhouse gas reduction, but decisions regarding it cannot be postponed.  Many of the decisions which power plants are making today will impact their CO2 capture costs.  Therefore, capture has to be considered an urgent subject for analysis.  These are the conclusions reached by McIlvaine in its ...

  • California company`s `Green` cement captures CO2

    Cement is a major component of concrete, the world's most widely used man-made material, an integral part of roads, bridges and buildings. But making cement requires heating limestone and other materials to very high temperatures, a process that releases into the atmosphere large amount of carbon dioxide, or CO2, a leading cause of global warming. Brent Constantz is working to fix that problem ...

  • `Carbon farm` project will study ways to capture atmospheric CO2

    Imagine a new kind of farming in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta - 'carbon-capture' farming, which traps atmospheric carbon dioxide and rebuilds lost soils. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and the University of California, Davis plan to make it happen. DWR has awarded USGS and UC Davis a three-year, $12.3 million research grant to take ...

  • Carbon Dioxide Captured Directly From the Air

    NEW YORK, New York (ENS) - The capture of carbon dioxide, CO2, directly from the air has been successfully demonstrated by scientists at Columbia University and Global Research Technologies, LLC, a technology research and development company based in Tucson, Arizona. The 'air extraction' prototype has demonstrated that carbon dioxide can be captured from the atmosphere, ...

  • New EU report will call for 90% capture of CO2 emissions by 2015

    You may have heard about 'Carbon Capture and Storage' - it's a way of keeping CO2 from entering the atmosphere and contributing to global warming. Last year a proposed Europe-wide directive was proposed, which would regulate the emerging practice. British Liberal Chris Davies is preparing a report calling for it to be mandatory. He wants all new coal burning power stations to be required to ...

  • Capturing carbon straight from the air: what are the costs?

    Carbon capture from power plants has gained much attention as a means to decrease greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). A recent study assesses an alternative method that directly removes carbon dioxide from the air. The findings indicate that this method is comparable in costs to the mitigation costs estimated by the IPCC and the Stern report. Targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions have been ...

  • Carbon capture and storage could also impact air pollution

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) involves capturing carbon dioxide released by power stations and other industrial sources, and burying it deep underground. But in addition to keeping an important greenhouse gas (GHG) out of the atmosphere, this technology will lead to benefits and trade-offs for air pollution. A new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA) describes the effects that CCS ...

  • B&W Technology Selected for Use in DOE’s FutureGen 2.0 CO2-Capture Project

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) (NYSE: BWC) announced today that the oxy-coal combustion technology developed by its Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc. subsidiary (B&W PGG) and Air Liquide Process & Construction, Inc. has been included by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in its award of a cooperative agreement to Ameren Energy Resources ...

  • Geologists map rocks to soak CO2 from air

    To slow global warming, scientists are exploring ways to pull carbon dioxide from the air and safely lock it away. Trees already do this naturally through photosynthesis; now, in a new report, geologists have mapped large rock formations in the United States that can also absorb CO2, which they say might be artificially harnessed to do the task at a vastly increased pace. The report, by ...

  • Energy Department Project Captures and Stores more than One Million Metric Tons of CO2

    Following the one year mark since the release of the President’s Climate Action Plan, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) - in partnership with Air Products and Chemicals Inc. – today announced a major milestone, successfully capturing more than one million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) at the hydrogen-production facility in Port Arthur, Texas. Using an innovative technology of ...

  • Westec Environmental Solutions (WES), LLC is Recognized for Innovation in CO2 Capture and Storage by Perseo Award

    October 14, 2010 (Chicago, IL) – Spanish utility company Iberdrola has announced Westec Environmental Solutions (WES), LLC as a winner under the first call of the Perseo Awards. Designed to promote research in the energy sector, the Perseo Awards support state-of-the-art initiatives that are leading innovators in their field. WES, LLC was selected as the best proposal in the ...

  • Driving down the cost of carbon capture

    Post-combustion carbon dioxide capture technologies can already be used under certain conditions and pre-combustion separation uses technologies that are well established in other industrial sectors, such as fertiliser generation and hydrogen production. However, alternative technologies are being explored to further drive down costs and improve overall energy efficiency. New research has ...

  • World premiere: Air Liquide inaugurates its CO₂ cold capture system, Cryocap™

    Today (Nov 5, 2915), in France, Air Liquide inaugurated Cryocap™, a unique industrial installation that enables the capture of CO2 released during hydrogen production via a cryogenic process. Connected to Air Liquide’s largest hydrogen production unit in France, located in Port-Jérôme, Notre-Dame-de-Gravenchon (Normandy), Cryocap™ represents an ...

  • Capture and reuse of energy: the benefits of regional synergy

    Reusing energy between industries located close to one another improves overall energy efficiency and can significantly reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A recent study of the Kwinana Industrial Area (KIA) in Australia has identified collaborative energy recovery options (regional synergies), which use waste heat from one industry to cut down primary energy inputs into other industries ...

  • Carbon Capture and Storage Hopes Rise Again
