  • Rethinking Carbon Dioxide: From a pollutant to an asset

    With global greenhouse gas emissions still on the rise, despite decades of talk about curbing them, maybe the time has come to think differently about the climate crisis. Yes, we need to burn less coal, oil and natural gas, but clearly fossil fuels are going to be around for awhile. So why not try to clean up the mess they make? That's what a handful of prominent scientists are trying to do by ...

  • Low-cost recyclable material could capture carbon dioxide from power plants

    Researchers have developed a new, low-cost material for capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the smokestacks of coal-fired power plants and other generators of the greenhouse gas. Produced with a simple one-step chemical process, the new material has a high capacity for absorbing carbon dioxide — and can be reused many times. Combined with improved heat management techniques, the new material ...

  • 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. ...

  • London Recycling Limited`s Fleet Goes Carbon Neutral

    London Recycling Limited goes Carbon Neutral In a move to further reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and help protect the environment, London Recycling Limited’s fleet has been awarded CarbonNeutral certification by The CarbonNeutral Company.

  • Reduce, reuse, recycle...energy

    The United States throws away a staggering amount of energy that could be cheaply and easily captured and used, according to the latest issue of World Watch magazine. Waste-energy recycling-which captures smokestack waste and other wasted energy and puts it to work-currently contributes about 10,000 megawatts of electric power to the U.S. national total each year. But a recent study ...

  • How to make money in carbon capture

    There is a strong business case scenario for carbon capture, even without carbon taxes and cap and trade. And that could be a good thing or a bad one, depending on your perspective. The key is how you feel about the tar sands in Alberta, Canada. If you took 450 million tons of carbon dioxide from power plants ...

  • Science opens routes to energy recycling

    Molecular biology has been used by scientists in the US to make a catalyst that can split water into hydrogen and oxygen. It means that a truly renewable biotechnological material could be used to help cars run on water. In China, chemists have announced a nanofabric – a catalyst put together atoms at a time – that could begin the process of turning the greenhouse gas carbon ...

  • New! whitepaper recycling lightweight automobiles

    Lightweight design is an important factor to reduce greenhouse gas emissions of automobiles. Nevertheless, not every weight savings inevitably reduces emissions. On the one hand, materials of lower weight need more energy to produce but, on the other hand, they reduce the consumption in the useful life. Only a consideration of the entire life of the automobile can determine if the lightweight ...

  • Combining brine management with carbon capture

    Water shortages are an urgent issue in many areas of the world and it is likely that the construction of desalination plants will increase to meet the rising demand for fresh water. A new study has evaluated a combined process to manage both the brine by-product from desalination plants and capture carbon dioxide. Desalination separates seawater (or inland saline or salty water) into fresh water ...

  • Israeli dump to become recycling park

    An Israeli landfill, which served as a dumping ground for the Tel Aviv region for 46 years, is to be transformed into a model of environmental rectitude -complete with recycling plants and a recycling theme park. The US$ 250 million (Euro 170 million) project was initiated by former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon - who has been in a coma since suffering a stroke in January 2006 - and will ...

  • Could carbon credit schemes save the whale?

    It's likely that commercial whaling has released around one hundred million tons of carbon to the atmosphere over a century or so. That's according to researcher Andrew Pershing, who believes that carbon credit schemes could be employed as an incentive to protect whales and large fish such as bluefin tuna. In a joint project backed by the University of Maine, US, and Gulf of Maine Research ...
