  • Carbon capture and storage

    I am pleased to inform Parliament that today, the Prime Minister and I are signing a contract with Shell to take their world leading gas carbon capture and storage (CCS) project into the next stage of development. The Government has agreed a multi-million pound contract for engineering, design and financial work on the Peterhead CCS project in Aberdeenshire. The world’s first planned gas ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Bonn Climate Talks Turn to Discussion of Carbon Capture and Storage Technology

    Carbon capture and storage, the technology that pumps greenhouse gases produced by burning fossil fuels beneath the surface of the earth, was at the center of negotiations at the Bonn Climate Change Conference Oct. 21, though much of the work took place behind the scenes in small group meetings. The technology is controversial within the United Nations climate change process because it is ...

  • 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 ...
