The project is one of the biggest of its kind to date. SINTEF, the independent research organisation, The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and Aker Clean Carbon, the industrial technology ...

  • CO2 capture has to be addressed now

    Capturing CO2 and sequestering it underground is an attractive longer term option for greenhouse gas reduction, but decisions regarding it cannot be postponed.  Many of the decisions which power plants are making today will impact their CO2 capture costs.  Therefore, capture has to be considered an urgent subject for analysis.  These are the conclusions reached by McIlvaine in its ...

  • Capturing CO2 Emissions Needed to Meet Climate Targets

    Technologies that are discussed controversially today may be needed to keep the future risks and costs of climate change in check. Combining the production of energy from fossil fuels and biomass with capturing and storing the CO2 they emit (CCS) can be key to achieving current climate policy objectives such as limiting the rise of the global mean temperature to below 2 degrees Celsius. This is ...

  • Coal-generated CO2 captured in Australia – a first

    CSIRO Energy Technology Chief, Dr David Brockway, said the milestone followed the Garnaut Report’s recognition that Australia has an important role to play in developing low emission coal technologies such as PCC.“PCC uses a liquid to capture CO2 from power station flue gases and can potentially reduce CO2 emissions from existing and future coal-fired power stations by more than 85 per cent,” he ...

  • Capturing China`s CO2 to lower emissions

    China's potential for carbon capture and storage (CCS), an essential technology to achieve low global emissions, will be examined next week at a conference of senior scientific experts from China and the EU. It will be hosted by the British Geological Survey (BGS) in Nottingham on February 10-12 2009. The conference will highlight how British science is supporting China in developing their ...


  • 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, ...

  • California company`s `Green` cement captures CO2

    Cement is a major component of concrete, the world's most widely used man-made material, an integral part of roads, bridges and buildings. But making cement requires heating limestone and other materials to very high temperatures, a process that releases into the atmosphere large amount of carbon dioxide, or CO2, a leading cause of global warming. Brent Constantz is working to fix that problem ...

  • CO2 capture from coal power begins in Qld

    The A$5 million PCC demonstration project is a partnership between CSIRO and Tarong Energy Corporation Limited. PCC uses a liquid solvent to capture CO2 from power station flue gases and has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions from coal-fired power stations by more than 80 per cent. CSIRO Advanced Coal Technology Director, Dr John Carras, said PCC technology can help strike ...

  • Mantra to develop commercial scale CO2 capture facility

    Vancouver-based Mantra Venture Group Ltd. has announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Bluebird Co. Ltd.

  • Carbon capture in soil could reduce CO2 emissions

    To help mitigate climate change, it is possible to capture carbon in soil to avoid its release into the atmosphere. Breakdown of organic matter by organisms in the soil bacteria, releases carbon and incorporates it into the soil as soil organic matter (SOM). A new review has explored different EU strategies for capturing carbon in soil. As part of the Kyoto1 protocol, the 15 member states that ...

  • 7 CEMS for the experimental Spanish CO2 Capture Plant!
