  • EU project taking CO2 out of the atmosphere

    'The European Commission is committed to encouraging industry to reduce its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and research plays a vital role in that,' said the European Science and Research Commissioner, Janez Potočnik. The accumulation of CO2 is considered to be the main cause of climate change. However, the EU-backed project CO2SINK, with financing to the tune of EUR 8.7 million, aims to ...

  • Monitoring CO2 Concentrations in Pig and Poultry Processing

      Over recent years, there has been increasing concern for raising animal welfare standards in pig and poultry processing and the meat processing industry as a whole. This covers not just the animal’s environment and diet but also the procedures used in the slaughtering process. To ensure that an animal is insensitive to pain while being slaughtered, a European Union directive1requires ...

  • Bees, balloons, pollen used as novel CO2 monitoring approach

    Researchers at the Office of Fossil Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) have discovered an innovative way to use bees, pollen, and helium-filled balloons to verify that no carbon dioxide (CO2) leaks from carbon sequestration sites. These new methods are an excellent way to determine environmental impact without disrupting habitats surrounding sequestration sites and can ensure ...

  • U.S. CO2 emissions fall to lowest level since 1994

    Energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in 2012 were the lowest in the United States since 1994, at 5.3 billion metric tons of CO2. With the exception of 2010, emissions have declined every year since 2007 according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). The 2012 estimates of carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion were 3.7 percent lower than in 2011, and nearly ...

  • New tool could aid safe underground storage of CO2, says MIT

    To prevent global warming, researchers and policymakers are exploring a variety of options to significantly cut the amount of carbon dioxide that reaches the atmosphere. One possible approach involves capturing greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide at the source -- an electric power plant, for example -- and then injecting them underground. While theoretically promising, the technique has never ...
