IEA Holds Global Summit on Carbon Capture
The International Energy Agency held a high-level summit with energy ministers, government officials and chief executives of major energy companies to support a renewed push for investment in carbon capture, utilisation and storage...
Evaluation of Novel Hybrid Membranes for Carbon Capture
Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture remains a priority in many countries as the world seeks to address climate change. In particular, the most recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shows that geological storage of carbon dioxide is required for all scenarios that can meet 430 - 550 ppm CO2 atmospheric concentrations...
COP23: CCS Industry Warns More Than 2,000 Carbon Capture Plants Needed by 2040
Global Status of CCS Report confirms 17 large scale CCS plants are now operational, but warns surge of development is urgently required The Global CCS Institute has reiterated its warning that the pace of development across the fledgling carbon capture sector needs to accelerate sharply if the world is to meet the emissions goals set out in the Paris Agreement...
BHP Partners With Leading Universities on CCS Understanding
BHP Billiton, the global mining company, has entered a a global collaboration with top international universities to accelerate a deeper understanding of CCS in a range of subsurface locations...
Launching Standards for CO2 Capture and Storage
New international standards for storage and transport of carbon dioxide will be presented at a seminar at the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) in Stavanger on 1 November...
CO2 Solutions Looks at Commercial Mining Project
CO2 SOlutions will conduct a preliminary engineering study to assess the viability of applying its enzymatic carbon capture technology in a potential 32-tonne per day CO2 capture project for an undisclosed client in the mining and metals industry...
How Does Clean Coal Work?
CCS technology has been around since the 1980s. While the other technologies mentioned above cut down on sulfur dioxide and coal ash (which are important), CCS is meant to handle the big environmental nightmare, the heat-trapping gas largely responsible for global warming, carbon dioxide (CO2)...
What's the Best Way to Implement Carbon Capture Technology?
If we really want to limit the damage that will result from global warming, it won’t be enough to just cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The world will also have to find a way to capture a great deal of the greenhouse gases we produce...
Cement Sustainability Initiative Publishes Technology Review on Mitigating CO2 Emissions
The Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) has published a technology review on current and anticipated developments that can be used to mitigate CO2 emissions in cement production...
Capturing Carbon to Tackle Climate Change
Greenhouse gases – particularly carbon dioxide – remain in our environment for many years, contributing to the warming of the planet. Now some truly innovative methods are emerging for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere...
