  • Tracing CO2 elements in the ocean

    The surface waters of the vast Southern Ocean are suffering from 'marine anaemia' – a serious deficiency in the micronutrient iron. Just as iron deficiency negatively affects the health and productivity of humans and other land-based creatures, so it affects the phytoplankton (microscopic marine plants) existing in the oceanic realm. The environmental consequences of this condition restrict ...

  • Microalgae against CO2

    Due to the different environmental conditions on the planet, the harvesting of microalgae is not currently a totally efficient solution for the capture of CO2emissions and greenhouse effect gases, due to the fact that an optimised photobioreactor for its application at different latitudes of the planet does not exist. The R+D FLEXIPHO project falls within this context, a project approved by the ...

  • A `black magic` CO2 fix

    Biochar is made by heating woody waste at high temperatures without oxygen, a process that also produces biogas and usable ‘bio-oil’, renewable energy sources. The stable black carbon-rich solid left after these are captured can remain in soil for up to 5000 years. Used in agriculture, it could increase crop production and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and nitrous ...

  • Historically plants limited CO2 sinks

    Weathering, or natural degradation, of silicon-containing rocks should have produced a significant carbon sink over the past 24 million years. A new study suggests that plants have reduced this sink and kept CO2 levels at a higher level. Natural sinks of CO2 play an important role in adaptation and mitigation policies for climate change. In order to predict future climate change, it is necessary ...

  • European CO2 emissions up in 2007

    Early analyses reveal a slight increase in EU industrial CO2 emissions in 2007, casting doubts as to the bloc's ability to honour its CO2 reduction commitments on time. However, analysts predict emissions will drop in coming years as the Commission begins to tighten the EU's carbon belt. EU industrial installations publicised data on their CO2 emissions in 2007. The figures, which may be subject ...

  • Gasmet raises the bar for emissions analysers

    Gasmet Technologies, the Finland based instrumentation manufacturer, has announced that its FTIR-based Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS) has received approval from TÜV, the international certification body, for the EN 15267-3 standard, which is more recent and more stringent than the existing German Type Approval and QAL1 certificate, EN14181. This means that the Gasmet CEMS is ...

  • FTIR analyser reveals surprising solution

    Emissions analysers have to be checked annually by certified testers and during recent functionality tests for a Gasmet FTIR continuous emissions monitor (CEM) at a UK Energy from Waste plant, the Nitrogen Dioxide span check results were found to be incorrect. A subsequent investigation revealed surprising results that would not have been apparent had the plant been using traditional CEMs. NO2 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Monitoring CO2 storage in Australian gas field

    Australia has launched the first carbon sequestration project in the southern hemisphere with the help of technology developed by researchers at the US Department of Energy (DOE). The Otway Basin Pilot Project will inject and monitor carbon dioxide (CO2) in a depleted gas field in south-eastern Australia to demonstrate the feasibility of storing the greenhouse gas in the Waarre Formation of the ...

  • Agreement on monitoring of CO2 emissions from ships

    The Permanent Representatives Committee confirmed an agreement with the European Parliament on new EU-wide rules for monitoring, reporting and verification of CO2 emissions from ships. The agreement was reached in an informal trilogue on 18 November. International maritime shipping is the only means of transportation not included in the EU's commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. ...
