  • Will CO2 stay in the ground?

    Storing carbon deep below the earth's surface could play a prominent role in tackling climate change. But before underground CO2 reservoirs can be deployed as viable long-term storage options, environmental concerns over leakages and the behaviour of trapped CO2 must be addressed. A new model can help predict how different geological sites will respond to CO2 sequestration, and the likelihood of ...

  • Sequestration on shaky ground

    Original story at MIT News Carbon sequestration promises to address greenhouse-gas emissions by capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and injecting it deep below the Earth’s surface, where it would permanently solidify into rock.

  • Looking For the Answer in the Ground

    It has been a dry year in Australia. Very dry. Especially in Central Queensland, where the lack of rainwater is taking its toll. The land is thirsting, and the demand for groundwater is making record sales for submersible pumps. The sun is shining from a clear, blue sky. Not a cloud is in sight. Like most days. The temperature is a sizzling 35 degrees Celsius. Again. This year, only 100 ...

  • Why is ground-level ozone not on the decline?

    Europe has significantly cut its emissions of gases that lead to ground-level ozone. Despite this, levels of ozone do not appear to be falling. A recent EEA report questions this and suggests that the effect of the emission cuts on ozone may be masked by variable weather conditions. In many countries of Europe, the time-series of ozone data are yet too short to draw conclusions about long-term ...

  • Ground glass solution for cleaner water

    British science has led to a use for waste glass that cannot be recycled that could help clean up polluted waterways by acting as an ion-exchange filter to remove lead, cadmium and other toxic metals. Details are published in a forthcoming issue of the International Journal of Environment and Waste Management. Only a fraction of waste glass bottles and jars can be recycled, partly because much ...
