Montana State Researchers Win $1.5 Million for Developing Carbon Dioxide Tech
A special ceramic slurry and a conveyor belt whose surface is minus 30 degrees are some of the things a Montana State University researcher will use to help turn carbon dioxide into useful products...
CURC Applauds Introduction of the Advancing Carbon Capture in Energy Generation Act of 2018
The Carbon Utilization Research Council (CURC) commends Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) on the introduction of the Advancing Carbon Capture in Energy Generation Act of 2018 (S. 3566). The bill would make important technical modifications to the Section 48A “Qualifying Advanced Coal Project Credit” program that would unlock additional federal funding to incentivize investment in technologies that will improve the efficiency of the existing coal fleet...
Technology Center Mongstad: Major American Company Will Test New Technology for Carbon Capture at Mongstad
The engineering- and construction company Fluor has signed an agreement for use of the test facility Technology Center Mongstad (TCM) in Nordhordland...
Department of Energy Announces $30 Million for Transformational Carbon Capture Technologies
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is announcing up to $30 million in federal funding for cost-shared research and development (R&D) under the second closing of the Office of Fossil Energy’s (FE’s) Novel and Enabling Carbon Capture Transformational Technologies funding opportunity announcement...
Cash, Carbon, Crude: Stanford Study Highlights A Path and Price to Coax Emissions Back into Oil Rese
A new analysis looks at what it would take for oil companies to start pumping millions of tons of carbon dioxide into their wells to boost crude production – and what it would mean for the climate...
Battery Made Directly from Power Plant Captured Carbon Dioxide
MIT has made a battery partly from carbon dioxide captured from power plants. Rather than attempting to convert carbon dioxide to specialized chemicals using metal catalysts, which is currently highly challenging, this battery could continuously convert carbon dioxide into a solid mineral carbonate as it discharges...
A Pipeline to Capture Carbon Dioxide and Store It Underground
Capturing carbon emissions and locking them away deep underground could be a viable means of beginning to combat climate change. But, the industry needs a little help, researchers find...
US Govt Agency to Help India Build Carbon Capture Storage, Utilisation Tech
A US federal agency has tied up with an Indian engineering consultancy services firm to advance the adoption, use and research on commercial scale coal gasification and develop carbon capture storage and utilisation technologies in India...
New Carbon-Capture Technology Could Be Game-Changer for Fossil Fuels
A new demonstration power plant could change the economics of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). The 25-MW combined-cycle natural gas plant in LaPorte, Texas, called Net Power, incorporates CO2 generated back into the creation of energy and is the world’s only industrial-scale supercritical CO2-based power plant...
Canadian Firm Granted $375k for Carbon Capture Technology
A Canadian company has been granted $375,000 (£223,280) for research and development of its carbon capture technology...
