  • Turning greenhouse gas into gasoline

    Original story at MIT News A new catalyst material developed by chemists at MIT provides key insight into the design requirements for producing liquid fuels from carbon dioxide, the leading component of greenhouse gas emissions. The findings suggest a route toward using the world’s existing infrastructure for ...

  • Scientists question EPA estimates of greenhouse gas emissions

    The approach the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses to estimate greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural anaerobic lagoons that treat manure contains errors and may underestimate methane emissions by up to 65%, according to scientists from the University of Missouri. Anaerobic lagoons treat manure on some animal feeding operations prior to application to crops as a fertilizer. ...

  • Greenhouse Gas CO2 Sidetracked in Oceans` Twilight Zone

    WOODS HOLE, Massachusetts (ENS) - Climate experts have relied on the oceans to absorb enough of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide to slow global warming, but new research by an international team of scientists shows that the oceans may have little impact on changes in the atmosphere or climate. The research indicates that instead of sinking, carbon dioxide is often consumed by ...

  • Going global to gauge greenhouse gas behaviour

    The research scientist with CSIRO's Petroleum Resources, who is working within the Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC), is one of six young Victorian scientists to win the prestigious award, which was presented by Victorian Governor Professor David de Kretser, at special ceremony at Government House last night (Tuesday July 28). The annual Victorian Fellowships ...

  • Increasing oil production and reducing greenhouse gas emissions

    Cenovus operates the 210-square-kilometre Weyburn field in southeastern Saskatchewan. When it was discovered in 1954, the Weyburn field contained one of the largest medium-sour crude oil reservoirs in Canada, with approximately 1.4 billion barrels of oil in place. The Weyburn ...

  • New greenhouse gas identified, say MIT scientists

    A gas used for fumigation has the potential to contribute significantly to future greenhouse warming, but because its production has not yet reached high levels there is still time to nip this potential contributor in the bud, according to an international team of researchers. Scientists at MIT, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego and other institutions are reporting the results ...

  • Global greenhouse gas emissions projected to double

    According to OECD's latest analysis, global greenhouse gas emissions are projected to double in the next 40 years. This would result in a 3-6 degree increase of the average global temperature by the end of the century unless governments take decisive action. OECD's Environmental Outlook to 2050 (full publication in March 2012) paints a grim picture of the Earth in 2050 if we do ...

  • Bioenergy helps cut greenhouse-gas emissions

    Branches, stalks, and manure are waste no longer; bioenergy is part of the solution to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions. A study released by the Green Power Institute, the Renewable Energy Program of the Pacific Institute in Oakland, California, reports that converting forest residues, agricultural and urban biomass waste, and gases from manure and landfills into energy helps reduce our ...

  • 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 ...

  • Mounting Pressure to Curtail Greenhouse Gas Emissions Drives the Carbon Capture and Storage Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

    GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Carbon Capture and Storage markets. The worldwide CO2 capture and storage capacity is projected to reach 56 million tonnes by 2018, driven by increasing pressure to control emissions of greenhouse gasses, political will to achieve emission targets, and growing ...

  • 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 ...

  • EPA Finalizes Greenhouse Gas Permit for $500M CCI Petroleum Facilities

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a final greenhouse gas (GHG) Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) construction permit to CCI Corpus Christi, LLC. The company plans to construct petroleum process facilities near Corpus Christi, TX. “Climate change contributes to many types of challenges, especially for coastal areas like Corpus Christi,” said Regional ...

  • Greenhouse gas calculator connects farming practices with carbon credits

    Greenhouse gas markets, where invisible gases are traded, must seem like black boxes to most people. Farmers can make money on these markets, such as the Chicago Climate Exchange, by installing methane capture technologies in animal-based systems, no-till farming, establishing grasslands, and planting trees. Farmers, students, extension educators, offset aggregators, and other stakeholders need ...

  • U.S. EPA Announces Greenhouse Gas Standards for New Power Plants

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today announced proposed emissions standards for new power plants. According to the EPA, electricity generation represents one-third of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. These rules are one of the important steps the EPA ...

  • EPA Finalizes Greenhouse Gas Emissions Permit for Magellan Processing

    Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a final greenhouse gas (GHG) Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) construction permit to Magellan Processing, L.P. to build a new condensate splitter plant at the company’s existing terminal. The facility is in Nueces County, in Corpus Christi, Texas. “Corpus Christi’s economy is well-placed to take advantage ...

  • UK`s National Grid aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80%

    The UK's National Grid has announced it is to increase its target of reducing company-wide greenhouse gas emissions from 60 per cent to 80 per cent by 2050. It also unveiled its intention to adopt new carbon budgets across its UK and US electricity and gas businesses from April 2009, integrating them into the management of its day-to-day business operations and company performance process, to ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Increases Are Leading to a Faster Rate of Global Warming

    According to the most recent estimates, 2014 emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main contributor to global climate change, are projected to be 2.5 percent higher than 2013 levels, which translates into the release of 37 billion additional tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. As negotiators wrap up their talks at the international climate conference in Lima, Peru, there is no indication that this ...
