Web-Based Tool Helps Site Operators Choose the Safest CO2 Storage Option
MIRECOL (Remediation and mitigation of CO2 leakage) performed a full-fledged analysis of both existing and upcoming remediation and mitigation techniques. Focusing on corrective measures inside or close to the storage reservoir, the project has gathered knowledge about the efficacy of these techniques and has made its conclusions available in a dedicated handbook and web-based tool...
Chemical Looping Combustion for CO2-Neutral Gas Facilities
A novel gas combustion method removing the need for expensive gas separation has been successfully scaled-up. The novel method has gas-to-steam efficiency penalties much lower than alternative CO2 capture technologies, as well as a CO2 avoidance cost reduced by 60 % compared to amine scrubbing...
Norway Extends Grant for Mongstad CCS Research
Norwegian state-owned carbon capture technology firm Gassnova has extended an 85 million euro ($100.42 million) grant for research at the CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad, free trade association watchdog ESA said on Tuesday...
MP Simon Clarke Says Potential for Scheme Is Not Lost in Region
MP Simon Clarke has met with Energy Minister Richard Harrington to discuss the potential for a Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) network in the North-East, which officials say could deliver thousands of jobs...
Water 'Fingerprint' Technique Proposed As Carbon Capture and Storage Technology
Scottish scientists have found cost-effective and reliable way to monitor the storage of the most common greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide (CO2), deep underground...
New Carbon-Capturing Membranes May Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Researchers believe the new ceramic, ion-conduction membrane will help curb greenhouse gas by trapping CO2 and converting it into fuel, though it may not be ready for commercial adoption for a few more years...
Hundred-Year-Old Law on Fluid Flow Overturned by Imperial Research
The discovery by researchers from Imperial could lead to a range of improvements including advances in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). This is where industrial emissions will be captured by CCS technology, before reaching the atmosphere, and safely stored in rock deep underground...
Schroders Launch Climate Progress Dashboard
Schroders announces the launch of the Climate Progress Dashboard, designed to give investors a unique insight into the progress governments and industries are making towards meeting the 2°C temperature rise target and the transition to a low-carbon global economy...
Statoil, Vattenfall and Gasnuie in Progressive Dutch Hydrogen and CCS Deal
Statoil, Vattenfall and Gasunie signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to evaluate the possibilities of converting Vattenfall's gas power plant in the Netherlands into a H2-powered plant...
University of Sheffield Well-Placed to Spearhead Proposed CCS Catapult
The call for further investment in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in a new working paper by IPPR North as part of the Northern Energy Taskforce has been welcomed by the University of Sheffield...
