  • New process removes sulfur components, carbon dioxide from power plant emissions

    The Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has developed a reusable organic liquid that can pull harmful gases such as carbon dioxide or sulfur dioxide out of industrial emissions from power plants. The process could directly replace current methods and allow power plants to capture double the amount of harmful gases in a way that uses no water, less energy and saves money. ...

  • Concentrating emissions

    Researchers at MIT have shown the benefits of a new approach toward eliminating carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions at coal-burning power plants. Their system, called pressurized oxy-fuel combustion, provides a way of separating all of the carbon-dioxide emissions produced by the burning of coal, in the form of a concentrated, pressurized liquid stream. This allows for carbon dioxide sequestration: ...

  • Waste-to-energy process promises smaller, cleaner plants

    Cutting edge waste-to-energy plants that are smaller and cleaner than incinerators could soon hit the UK market. The plants run a new process that transforms non-recyclable waste into a clean syn-gas, used to generate clean power and a high-strength building material, with the plant itself powered by the syn-gas it produces. Carbon-neutral and very low in emissions with plants around a third of ...
