  • 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) ...

  • DOE releases methodology used to estimate carbon dioxide storage potential

    The US Department of Energy (DOE) has released its Methodology for Development of Geologic Storage Estimates for Carbon Dioxide, a document that details the procedures used to produce the geologic resource estimates for carbon dioxide (CO2) storage potential in the soon-to-be-released 2008 Carbon Sequestration Atlas of the United States and Canada (Atlas II). DOE expects to release the updated ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Who pays for carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) demonstrations in developing countries?

    On April 7th, a group of 24 Energy Ministers met in Abu Dhabi for the 2nd Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM). The group represented the governments of countries collectively responsible for over 80% of global energy consumption, and together they agreed to increase efforts to deploy ...

  • Modeling underground sequestration of carbon dioxide

    When it comes to predicting the fate of captured carbon dioxide (CO2) stored underground, 2008 Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer Michael Celia, Ph.D., and his colleagues have invented a better mousetrap for decision-makers trying to mitigate the effects of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. Celia wrapped up his year as the National Ground Water Research and Educational's Foundation Darcy ...

  • Green fuel from carbon dioxide

    It is beyond dispute that carbon dioxide (CO2) has an effect on global warming as a greenhouse gas, but we still pump tons and tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every day. A research team at the Freiburg Materials Research Center (FMF) led by chemist Prof. Dr.Ingo Krossing has developed a new system for producing methanol that uses CO2 and hydrogen. Methanol can be used as an environmentally ...

  • Carbon dioxide leaks – and leaks, and leaks…

    The recently reported carbon dioxide incident at Greene King Brewery was just the  latest in a series of seemingly endless carbon dioxide leaks. Whilst breweries are a major producer and user of CO2, this is not the only industry whose staff, neighbours and ...

  • Setting the standard for carbon storage

    CSA Standards, a leading developer of standards, codes and personnel certification programs, and the International Performance Assessment Centre for Geologic Storage of Carbon Dioxide (IPAC-CO2 Research Inc.) today announced a joint agreement to develop Canada"s first carbon capture and storage (CCS) standard for the geologic storage of industrial emissions. The CCS standard will be developed by ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • EPA To Develop Regulations for Geologic Sequestration of Carbon Dioxide

    (Washington, D.C. - Oct. 11, 2007) Today EPA announced plans to develop regulations to establish a clear path for geologic sequestration, a process of injecting captured carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, in deep rock formations for long-term storage. Once completed, the regulations will ensure there is a consistent and effective permit system under the Safe Drinking Water Act for commercial-scale ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Burying the climate change problem: greenhouse gas carbon dioxide

    Burying the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, a byproduct of burning fossil fuels, has been mooted as one geoengineering approach to ameliorating climate change. To be effective, trapping the gas in geological deposits would be the for the very long term, thousands of years. Now, a team in Brazil, writing in the International Journal of Global Warming has reviewed the risk assessments for this ...
