  • On-board carbon capture for cars

    Capturing carbon dioxide at source from vehicles in the transportation sector and small-scale power plants could significantly cut overall carbon emissions to the atmosphere in the short-term, while playing a strategic role in the development of a sustainable carbon economy in the longer-term. New research suggests that it is feasible to capture and store CO2 emissions at the point of generation ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Making carbon capture more affordable

    New research from CO2CRC suggests that the cost of capturing carbon dioxide from Australian power stations could be reduced by 25 percent. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has the potential to make deep cuts in global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, a major contributor to climate change, by capturing and storing carbon dioxide emissions from major sources such as power stations. One of the ...

  • Carbon Dioxide: Reduction, Capture, Reuse

    Ryncosmos LLC, creator of Strataclear®, the unique technology that captures CO2 from raw exhaust in moving vehicles, announces that a presentation on the performance of its technology will be made on June 18 at the Emissions 2013 Conference, sponsored by Eastern Michigan University at Ypsilanti, ...

  • 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. The problem is that despite this enthusiasm and the fact that CCS (also called carbon sequestration) is technically possible, it is not ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 and storage: climate impacts

    One proposal for meeting targets for the reduction in emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) is to capture and store CO2 that is emitted by fossil fuel burning power stations. In a recent study, researchers demonstrated that carbon capture and storage (CCS) could help mitigate against climate change, especially in the short term. Using CCS, CO2 emitted from energy or industrial plants could be ...

  • 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 ...

  • FTIR Gas Analyser Supports Carbon Capture Research

    Quantitech has commissioned an advanced Gasmet FTIR multiparameter gas analyser at the UK Carbon Capture & Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) facility near Sheffield. This Pilot-scale Advanced Capture Technology (PACT) facility was created to catalyse and support both industrial and academic research. PACT Business Development Manager Dr Kris Milkowski, from the University of Leeds, says: ...

  • CO2 Solutions Partners for U.S. Carbon Capture Pilot

    CO2 Solutions Inc., an innovator in the field of enzyme-enabled carbon capture technology, today announced that it has entered into a Collaboration Agreement with Colorado-based Neumann Systems Group, Inc. (“NSG” or “Neumann Systems”), an established emissions control solutions provider. Under the terms of the agreement, CO2 Solutions and NSG will demonstrate a combination ...

  • 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 ...

  • SNC-LAVALIN wins carbon capture project in Saskatchewan

    SNC-Lavalin has announced that it has been awarded a contract to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for SaskPower's Boundary Dam Integrated Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) Demonstration Project. The project involves transforming an aging unit at the coal-fired Boundary Dam Power Station near Estevan, Saskatchewan, into a source of clean electricity. This will ...

  • 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 Hopes Rise Again

    Carbon capture and storage, if it proved possible, would help to make the main greenhouse gas harmless. American scientists say they are making progress. Two groups of US scientists are exploring new ways of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. One technology mimics the tree by using ...
