  • How to make money in carbon capture

    There is a strong business case scenario for carbon capture, even without carbon taxes and cap and trade. And that could be a good thing or a bad one, depending on your perspective. The key is how you feel about the tar sands in Alberta, Canada. If you took 450 million tons of carbon dioxide from power plants ...

  • New CO2CRC carbon capture project commissioned

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) research has taken a major step forward with the commissioning of Australia’s most comprehensive post-combustion carbon dioxide (CO2) capture research facility,  the CO2CRC H3 Capture Project, at International Power’s Hazelwood Power Station in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley. The project was launched by Victorian Energy and Resources Minister Peter Batchelor ...

  • FTIR gas analyser supports carbon capture research

    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 ...

  • WWF report suggests UK not ready for carbon `capture ready`

    Carbon 'capture ready' means very little to coal-fired power stations now being considered in Britain, according to a report commissioned by WWF-UK. How ready is capture ready? prepared by Edinburgh University’s Scottish Centre for Carbon Storage (SCCS) explored what the concept often touted by the power industry actually means to the industry, and found little in the way of any substantial ...
