  • Hydroxyl Radical Eliminates H2S in Wet Scrubbers & Flue Gases

    In a recent study in Houston, TX, H2S was removed from a natural gas stream containing 2,000 mg/l of H2S and 5% CO2 using JC 9450 ROS. JC 9450 ROS is a new mineral oxychloride compound that generates Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) like hydroxyl radical ions and others ions in a highly soluble form that is easy to use. The study, which simulated operating conditions of a wet scrubber, found that ...

  • 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 ...

  • CO2 capture and storage gains a growing foothold

    On a placid bend of the Ohio River in West Virginia sit two coal-fired power plants. The Philip Sporn Plant boasts four boilers from the 1950s, surrounded by mountains of coal and a series of man-made lakes to contain the toxic residue of its coal-burning. A faint haze emanates from its main smokestack, the only visible sign of the thousands of tons of acid-rain-forming sulfur dioxide, ...

  • DEEPSEA CHALLENGE - CO2 analysis seven miles deep

    At almost seven miles down, carbon dioxide management is critical for life support. On 26th March 2012, with James Cameron at 35,756 feet under the waves on the seabed of the Mariana Trench, he and the DEEPSEA CHALLENGE team needed real-time live data on the levels of oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), air temperature and humidity in the sub. Those four readings from a specially modified Geotech ...

  • New emissions regulations indicate rise of LNG as marine fuel in Asia

    Given the restrictions implemented by International Marine Organization (IMO) requiring lower exhaust emission of sulfur oxides (SOx), nitrous oxide (NOx), particulate matter (PM), and carbon dioxide (CO2), there will necessarily be a movement towards lower-emission fuels, especially in Emissions Control Areas (ECAs). The coasts of the US, Canada and Northern Europe are all highly regulated ...
