  • Plan to Cut Pollution from Combustion Plants Watered Down by the Council

    Today (Dec 17, 2014) the Council of Ministers agreed on a position that would limit emissions from medium-size combustion plants [1] but create too many loopholes and unjustified flexibility schemes to be fully effective. The Council’s position exempts operators of refineries, plants operated on large-scale farming sites or plants on islands and there would be complex transition periods for ...

  • Can capturing carbon become a reality?

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is both hailed as a “silver bullet” for the coal industry, and reviled as a pipe dream. The reality is that the US needs CCS, and a comprehensive policy framework for rapid development and deployment. Undoubtedly, CCS has many detractors. Many are calling for investment in wind, solar and other renewable energies rather than in capture technologies. Renewable ...

  • Carbon capture and storage – It’s time for a reality check, say Canadian researchers

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been hailed as a 'silver bullet' for the coal industry. According to the World Resources Institute, there is a need for CCS. But the lack of a regulatory framework governing carbon emissions is making it difficult for industry to invest in the development and implementation of major, new technologies. A similar concern has been expressed in Canada. Lack of a ...
