  • Leading Scottish Technology and Art Unite Against Climate Change

    TWO companies producing leading edge technology in Scotland have joined forces with environmental artists to measure CO2 during the Edinburgh Festival. The project, called Spirit in the Air: CO2 Edenburgh, aims to fuel debate on how art can change the political and social climate and how the arts sector can cut its own greenhouse gas emissions. It is led by renowned international environmental ...

  • First-of-a-kind sequestration field test begins in West Virginia

    Injection of carbon dioxide (CO2) began today in a first-of-a-kind field trial of enhanced coalbed methane recovery with simultaneous CO2 sequestration in an unmineable coal seam. The ultimate goal of the U.S. Department of Energy–sponsored project is to help mitigate climate change by providing an effective and economic means to permanently store CO2 in unmineable coal seams. CONSOL Energy ...

  • CO2 emissions from new cars see biggest fall in 2009

    Average CO2 emissions from new cars sold in the EU dropped by 5% last year, the biggest annual fall ever recorded, a report published today by the European Commission shows. The Commission also adopted detailed rules to harmonise the monitoring of CO2 emissions from cars across the EU. Commissioner Hedegaard will report on these developments in this afternoon's meeting of the High-Level Group ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • PKL Technologies Inc. Introduces Open Path CO2 Monitors For GHG and CCS

    PKL Technologies Inc. has introduced Spectra-1 TDLAS (Tuneable Diode Laser Absorption Spectrometer) for open path CO2 remote gas sensing applications. Ideal for large area CO2 monitoring - GHG (Greenhouse Gas) and CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) applications. Monitoring carbon capture injection sites is difficult without large area CO2 monitoring. With path lengths up to 1 KM, effective large ...

  • Figuring out where to put the carbon

    To meet our immediate energy needs without exacerbating climate change, most experts agree, we’ll need to find a way to store the carbon dioxide given off by the combustion of coal, oil and natural gas. But no full-scale storage systems exist, and the plans to create them have many unknowns. New projects at MIT could help to fill that information gap. At the American Geophysical Union’s fall ...

  • CARBOTRAF – Black Carbon reduction by traffic management

    CARBOTRAF is a Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission. Lasting for three years, the project will study the relationship between traffic flow, Black Carbon (BC) emissions and carbon dioxide in urban environments. The project aims to create a method, system and tools for adaptively influencing traffic flow in real-time to reduce CO2 and BC emissions caused by road transport ...

  • Field test to advance geological carbon storage while enhancing domestic

    A Department of Energy sponsored project in Hopkins County, Kentucky has begun injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) into a mature oil field to assess the region's CO2 storage capacity and feasibility for enhanced oil recovery. The project is part of DOE's Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (RCSP) program and is being conducted by The Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium (MGSC). The ...

  • 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 ...

  • DOE-sponsored Mississippi project hits 1m ton milestone for injected CO2

    A large-scale carbon dioxide (CO2) storage project in Mississippi has become the fifth worldwide to reach the important milestone of more than 1 million tons injected. As a result, it is helping to both further carbon capture and storage (CCS) as a mitigation strategy for global climate change and move forward G-8 recommendations for launching 20 projects of this type internationally by 2010. ...

  • Long term data for monitoring climate change

    Nearly 30 years of sampling data demonstrate that rural locations can be used to monitor greenhouse gases (GHGs), even in a densely populated continent such as Europe. The data have been used to explore how vegetation affects GHG emissions. Urban and industrial settings are unsuitable for measuring global trends in levels of GHGs as there are many local sources of emissions which can affect the ...

  • 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 ...
