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...
CO2 Storage Ten Times Cheaper Than Decommissioning Old Oil Rigs
Refitting old North Sea platforms to act as pumping stations for self-contained CO2 storage sites would be 10 times cheaper than decommissioning the structures...
Next-Gen Membranes for Carbon Capture
CO2 produced from burning fossil fuels is still mostly released into the atmosphere, adding to the burden of global warming. One way to cut CO2 levels is through carbon capture, a chemical technique that removes CO2 from emissions ("postcombustion"), preventing it from entering the atmosphere. The captured CO2 can then be recycled or stored in gas or liquid form, a process known as sequestration....
Trinity Chemistry Researcher Secures ERC Award to Develop Advanced CO2 Capture Technologies
Professor Wolfgang Schmitt from Trinity's School of Chemistry, and AMBER, the SFI Research Centre for Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research, at Trinity, has today been announced as a recipient of the European Research Council's (ERC) Proof of Concept (POC) grant, worth €150,000...
Fossil Fuel Pipes and Reservoirs Could Store Captured Carbon Emissions
Reservoirs, pipes and platforms once used for the extraction and transport of polluting fossil fuels could instead be used to move and store captured carbon dioxide, helping tackle emissions from industry and energy...
Chemical Industry Experts Meet to Discuss CO2 Emissions Reduction
A BASF workshop brought together industry experts to discuss innovative CO2-reduction technologies as well as new collaborative approaches...
Total, IFPEN Team Up to Accelerate Carbon Reduction R&D
IFP Energies Nouvelles (IFPEN) and Total have signed a strategic R&D partnership on July 8, that includes an agreement to endow a chair at the IFP School, on carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) and technologies to curb CO2 emissions. The roughly €40 million (US$44 million) partnership covers a period of five years...
Sheffield Project Turns CO2 into Fertilizer
Carbon dioxide captured from the atmosphere could be used to restore degraded soils, save water and boost crop yields...
