  • Accounting for Carbon Capture and Storage

    A new report recently released by the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) provides the first-ever comprehensive framework for calculating carbon dioxide (CO2) emission reductions from carbon capture and storage (CCS). The framework equips policymakers and project developers with common methodologies for quantifying the emission impacts of CCS projects. CCS involves a suite of ...

  • Is Carbon Capture doomed to fail?

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is backed by governments and the International Energy Agency (IEA) as one of the best methods of reducing carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere and saving the planet from overheating. The problem is that despite this enthusiasm and the fact that CCS (also called carbon sequestration) is technically possible, it is not happening. It ...

  • The Quest for carbon capture and storage

    Shell today announced that it will go ahead with the first carbon capture and storage (CCS) project for an oil sands operation in Canada. The Quest project will be built on behalf of the Athabasca Oil Sands Project joint venture owners (Shell, Chevron and Marathon Oil) and with support from the Governments of Canada and Alberta. "Carbon capture & storage (CCS) is critical to meeting the huge ...

  • China and US boost search for carbon capture solutions

    Capturing carbon emissions from polluting industries has long been touted as a key way of helping to address climate change, but a new China-US agreement looks like giving much-needed stimulus to development of the technology. For years, the energy companies have been telling us not to worry. Yes, mounting carbon emissions threaten to heat up the world – but technology, particularly carbon ...

  • Carbon Sink: The Solution to Carbon Capture May Be Hiding in Your Bathroom

    First the good news. Carbon dioxide emissions from coal have been falling over the last five years in the U.S., hitting the lowest point for any quarter since 1986 in March 2012. Cheap natural gas allowed utilities to cut back on coal, the most “carbon-intense” fossil fuel used for power generation. But coal-fired power plants are not going away anytime soon in the U.S., and countries ...

  • Capturing carbon dioxide to grow food

    Delta, British Columbia-based ProSelect Gas Treating Inc. has unveiled a new carbon capture system for the greenhouse industry. The GC6 Carbon Capture System has the ability to harness carbon dioxide (CO2) from biomass combustion emissions and convert it into fertilizer to grow greenhouse crops. This $5 million Canadian-made innovation gives greenhouse growers access to a more sustainable ...

  • Combining brine management with carbon capture

    Water shortages are an urgent issue in many areas of the world and it is likely that the construction of desalination plants will increase to meet the rising demand for fresh water. A new study has evaluated a combined process to manage both the brine by-product from desalination plants and capture carbon dioxide. Desalination separates seawater (or inland saline or salty water) into fresh water ...

  • Carbon capture hopes set in stone

    Scientists in Iceland have concrete evidence that carbon capture and sequestration can be made to work. They have buried carbon dioxide in the rocks and watched it turn to stone. There is no guarantee that what works on a small scale at a geothermal plant in south-west Iceland could be practical or economical for the ...

  • Carbon capture milestone for CSIRO in China

    The project represents another first for the CSIRO PCC program - the first capture of carbon dioxide in China using a PCC pilot plant. It begins the process of applying the technology to Chinese conditions and evaluating its effectiveness. PCC is a process that uses a liquid to capture carbon dioxide from power station flue gases and is a technology that can potentially reduce carbon dioxide ...

  • 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 ...

  • Carbon capture and storage - reality or illusion

    Carbon capture and storage has become a hot topic in the business press recently, touted by some as the emission reducing key to continued use of fossil fuels, and panned by others as a great green scam perpetrated by the oil and gas industry. The truth is carbon capture and storage is anything but an illusion; but making it a commercial scale reality - at least in Canada - will require a great ...

  • Can capturing carbon become a reality?

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is both hailed as a “silver bullet” for the coal industry, and reviled as a pipe dream. The reality is that the US needs CCS, and a comprehensive policy framework for rapid development and deployment. Undoubtedly, CCS has many detractors. Many are calling for investment in wind, solar and other renewable energies rather than in capture technologies. Renewable ...

  • Carbon capture goes down the tubes

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is backed by governments and theInternational Energy Agency (IEA) as one of the best methods of reducing carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere and saving the planet from overheating.

  • Is carbon capture and storage coming to Canada?

    According to a report just released by a government-commissioned panel, Canadian governments generally should spend close to $2 billion to encourage carbon capture and storage (CCS) systems to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The report echoes recent plans by the Government of Alberta to reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions in this ...
