  • Carbon capture and storage: how much leakage is acceptable?

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is expected to play a key role in climate change mitigation strategies. However, identification of safe underground storage sites and the impacts of CO2 leakage are still being addressed. New research has modelled the effects of CO2 leakage and found that leakage rates of just 1 per cent could prevent CCS from being economically and environmentally viable. CCS ...

  • Monitoring CO2 leakage sites on the ocean floor

    Injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) deep below the seabed could be an important strategy for mitigating climate change, according to some experts. However, scientists need a reliable way to monitor such sites for leakage of the greenhouse gas. Now, researchers reporting in ACS' journal Environmental Science & Technology have studied natural sources of CO2 release ...

  • New tool could aid safe underground storage of CO2, says MIT

    To prevent global warming, researchers and policymakers are exploring a variety of options to significantly cut the amount of carbon dioxide that reaches the atmosphere. One possible approach involves capturing greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide at the source -- an electric power plant, for example -- and then injecting them underground. While theoretically promising, the technique has never ...

  • Early tests don`t find tainted water from oil boom in the Northern Plains oil patch

    Random testing of shallow groundwater in the Northern Plains oil patch found no early evidence of contamination from an energy boom that's already seen more than 8,500 wells drilled, federal scientists said Monday. However, the U.S. Geological Survey cautioned that the tests could have missed contamination from surface spills or leaking well casings. That's because water can take many hundreds of ...
