  • Tall Towers Fitted to Track CO2 Emissions

    BOULDER, Colorado, July 31, 2007 (ENS) - A new sensor in what will be a nationwide network for tracking carbon dioxide is now monitoring the air over Colorado's Front Range. A 1,000 foot tall tower east of Erie is one of 12 such towers that are being fitted with instruments by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA, to capture the regional ebb and flow of atmospheric carbon. ...

  • Bees, balloons, pollen used as novel CO2 monitoring approach

    Researchers at the Office of Fossil Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) have discovered an innovative way to use bees, pollen, and helium-filled balloons to verify that no carbon dioxide (CO2) leaks from carbon sequestration sites. These new methods are an excellent way to determine environmental impact without disrupting habitats surrounding sequestration sites and can ensure ...

  • Supercritical CO2 boosts super optimism in sequestering greenhouse gas

    Scientists appear to have the rock-solid evidence that suggests carbon dioxide can be safely and permanently sequestered in deep, underground basalt rock formations, without risk of it eventually escaping to the atmosphere. The findings have potential implications for sequestering carbon in other reservoir systems as well. Researchers at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National ...

  • 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 ...

  • Construction Begins on DOE-Sponsored Carbon-Capture Project at Kentucky Power Plant

    Today, construction began on an innovative $19.5 million carbon-capture pilot, funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), at Kentucky Utilities’ E.W. Brown Generating Station near Harrodsburg, Kentucky. The 2 megawatt thermal system will be the first megawatt-scale carbon-capture pilot unit in the Commonwealth. Officials of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and energy leaders — ...

  • 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 ...

  • FTIR gas analyser supports carbon capture research

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...

  • Complying with emissions regulations: calculating the acid plume from ships’ desulphurisation equipment

    Marine diesel contains sulphur compounds, which generate sulphur oxide (SOx) pollution and acid rain. Ships can use mitigating technologies to reduce their SOx emissions, but these can also have a negative environmental impact. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) introduced stringent legislation to control these, aspects of which are incorporated into EU policy. This study examined the ...

  • LI-COR Analyzers Monitoring Carbon Dioxide Worldwide as Atmospheric Levels Reach 400 parts per million

    On May 13, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported a preliminary daily average carbon dioxide (CO2) reading of 400.07 parts per million (ppm) at the Mauna Loa Observatory on the Big Island of Hawaii. On May 9, a reading over 400 ppm was reported at the site for the first time ever. But that reading (400.03 ppm) was later revised to 399.89 ppm. The first CO2 ...
