  • Carbon dioxide storage 101

    Scientists and engineers will soon be able to receive advanced training and certification in burying and permanently storing underground the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide as part of a recent stimulus award from the Department of Energy. The DOE awarded nearly $1 million to the Seattle-based Environmental Outreach and Stewardship Alliance (EOS) to develop a carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) ...

  • New Swiss device to monitor carbon dioxide

    A new laser device installed on the Jungfraujoch in Switzerland will help scientists determine the source of carbon dioxide, a major greenhouse gas, on a real-time basis. Until now climatologists tracking carbon dioxide levels in high alpine regions have had to rely on individual samples painstakingly gathered and tested in distance laboratories. The site already hosts a pollution-monitoring ...

  • Carbon dioxide levels reach milestone at Arctic sites

    The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of Barrow, Alaska, reached 400 parts per million (ppm) this spring, according to NOAA measurements, the first time a monthly average measurement for the greenhouse gas attained the 400 ppm mark in a remote location. Carbon dioxide (CO2), emitted by fossil fuel combustion and other human activities, is the most significant greenhouse gas ...

  • Carbon Dioxide Levels and Safety Considerations in Winemaking

    Although, at first sight, winemaking might appear to be one of the most idyllic of occupations, it is an industry with its own serious safety concerns. The fermentation process that produces the highly desirable end product, whether it be a serious earthy, rich, Cabernet Sauvignon or a sweet, slightly decadent, Moscato, also produces a lot of carbon dioxide. In the realm of 40 times the volume of ...

  • Rising carbon dioxide and ‘acidified` waters in puget sound

    Scientists have discovered that the water chemistry in the Hood Canal and the Puget Sound, US, main basin is becoming more "acidified," or corrosive, as the ocean absorbs more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. These changes could have considerable impacts on the region"s shellfish industry over the next several decades. The study, co-sponsored by NOAA, the University of Washington Applied ...


  • Antarctic Ocean Losing Ability to Absorb Carbon Dioxide

    Norwich, UK - Recent climate change brought on by human activities has weakened one the Earth's natural defenses against global warming. Atmospheric carbon dioxide is not being absorbed by the Southern Ocean as quickly as it once was, an international research team has found. Scientists have observed the first evidence that the Southern Ocean’s ability to absorb the major greenhouse gas carbon ...

  • World carbon dioxide emissions may be falling

    Global carbon dioxide emissions may be dropping ever so slightly this year, spurred by a dramatic plunge in Chinese pollution, according to a surprising new study released Monday. The unexpected dip could either be a temporary blip or true hope that the world is about to turn the corner on carbon pollution as climate talks continue in Paris, said the study’s authors, a scientific team that ...

  • Gas leak in Ipswich restaurant – carbon dioxide hits the news again

    Last Monday (22 June, 2015) saw an incident involving a leak of CO2 from a drinks machine in McDonald’s on Tavern Street, Ipswich. The restaurant was evacuated for several hours to allow firefighters to ventilate the building. Members of staff were treated at the scene but thankfully no-one was ...

  • LI-COR Analyzers Monitoring Carbon Dioxide Worldwide as Atmospheric Levels Reach 400 parts per million

    On May 13, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported a preliminary daily average carbon dioxide (CO2) reading of 400.07 parts per million (ppm) at the Mauna Loa Observatory on the Big Island of Hawaii. On May 9, a reading over 400 ppm was reported at the site for the first time ever. But that reading (400.03 ppm) was later revised to 399.89 ppm. The first CO2 ...

  • Projects Selected for Safe and Permanent Geologic Storage of Carbon Dioxide

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the selection of 13 projects to develop technologies and methodologies for geologic storage of carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon capture and storage (CCS) research is focused on developing technologies to capture industrially generated CO2, and safely and permanently store it in underground geologic formations, in order to reduce the amount of CO2 being ...

  • Questions and Answers on the proposal for a directive on the geological storage of carbon dioxide

    1) What is carbon capture and storage? Carbon capture and storage is a suite of technological processes which involve capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the gases discarded by industry and transporting and injecting it into geological formations. The major application for carbon capture and storage (CCS) is to reduce CO2 emissions from power generation from fossil fuels, principally ...

  • Carbon Dioxide Capture, Storage May Help Ease Global Warming

    MONTREAL, Quebec, Canada, September 29, 2005 (ENS) - Capturing and storing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by power plants and factories before it enters the atmosphere could play a major role in minimizing climate change, finds a new assessment report finalized here Monday by member scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The first summary of the ...

  • SST Develop Cost Effective Solution to Carbon Dioxide Danger

    As building design increasingly embraces low energy solutions so the concern over internal air quality increases. Monitoring the levels of carbon dioxide found in homes and businesses has become increasingly important and in response to the increased demand from local authorities, architects and builders for accurate, reliable, maintenance free carbon dioxide detectors SST Sensing has developed ...

  • NOAA and US Coast Guard hunt for Alaskan methane and carbon dioxide sources

    Recent observations have suggested that the air above Alaska may already hold the first signs of a regional increase in greenhouse gas emissions that could contribute to climate change around the globe. To learn more about the region’s emissions, NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo., has teamed up with the U.S. Coast Guard at Kodiak Island. The two partners are flying NOAA ...

  • EPA Exempts Carbon Dioxide Injection From RCRA Hazardous Waste Regulations

    The Environmental Protection Agency is issuing a final rule that will exempt carbon dioxide streams captured from power plants and industrial sources and injected underground for geologic sequestration from federal hazardous waste regulations. The agency did not make the text of the final rule available Dec. 19. The EPA said carbon dioxide injected into Class VI wells approved for geological ...

  • All walled up and no place to go: large-scale geologic sequestration successes put carbon dioxide in its place

    It is the mid-17th century. Jan Baptist Van Helmont, a Belgian chemist, places a carefully measured 62 pounds of coal into a basin, which he ignites, covers, and allows to burn. When the fire has at last smoldered down to nothing but ash and embers, Van Helmont measures the remains and finds not the expected 62 pounds he had started with, but rather one lonely pound of debris.  In his treatise, ...

  • Carbon dioxide detection in industrial plants: Measuring range 0 – 5,00 % or 0 – 2,00 %

    For martians – provided they are existing – carbon dioxide atmosphere might be their natural habitat. We earthlings can only tolerate low concentrations of this gas. It is true that we are using the special properties of CO2 for many purposes, but in concentrations above 5000 ppm it can be hazardous to our health. Therefore it must be monitored. In areas that are rarely accessed such ...

  • WMO greenhouse gas bulletin 2006:atmospheric carbon dioxide levels highest on record

    In 2006, globally averaged concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere reached their highest levels ever recorded. The World Meteorological Organization’s (WMO) 2006 Greenhouse Gas Bulletin, published today, says it reached 381.2 parts per million (ppm), up 0.53 per cent from 379.2 ppm in 2005. The information is based on observations from the WMO Global CO2 and CH4 Monitoring ...
