New CO2 Removal Technique Produces Green Fuel, Offsets Ocean Acidification
2013-05-29 10:31:52

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new technique to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide has been demonstrated by scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The new technique also generates carbon-negative hydrogen and produces alkalinity, which can be used to offset ocean acidification. At laboratory scale, the team demonstrated a system that uses the acidity normally produced in saline water electrolysis to accelerate silicate mineral...

Forget Alkaline Water. pH Plus Tablets from LHN increase alkalinity and support a healthy body for individuals concerned about Acidosis. The product is being debuted on Amazon.Com for the first time. Tampa Bay, FL USA (PRWEB) June 09, 2012 Liberty Health Network, LLC announces the release of pH Plus Nutritional Supplement on Amazon.Com ACIDOSIS is a scary-sounding word. Perhaps that's because "Acidosis" (too much acid waste in our body), is considered by many researchers to be the basic...

Andreas Hoffman calculates buffer factor for water in the River Schelde and in the oceanA wide range of chemical and microbiological processes influence the acidity of natural waters. Dutch researcher Andreas Hofmann has developed a new method for accurately determining the acidity of water. This can be used to simultaneously view different chemical processes, and the effect of each process on the pH value can also be determined.Hofmann tested his method at various locations, such as the...

U.S. marine scientists say they have discovered that rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide are threatening shellfish populations in many ecosystems. The researchers, led by ecologist Whitman Miller of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, said the increasing CO2 levels are contributing to the acidification of open ocean, coastal and estuarine waters. For shellfish and other organisms having calcium carbonate shells and structures, the problem begins when atmospheric CO2...

New study finds diet rich in fruits and vegetables may strengthen bonesDiets that are high in protein and cereal grains produce an excess of acid in the body which may increase calcium excretion and weaken bones, according to a new study accepted for publication in The Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism (JCEM). The study found that increasing the alkali content of the diet, with a pill or through a diet rich in fruits and vegetables has the opposite effect...

By Jangbarwala, Juzer A recendy completed plant in the Power River basin in Wyoming uses a new method for treating water produced from coalbed methane (CBM) wells. The new fixed-bed dynamic flow ion exchange system provides better cost efficiency and less waste byproduct than other processes. The process has a hybrid design. It simulates all the advantages of moving resins or media beds in a fixed-bed design, and it minimizes wastes by diverting rinse portions, rather than resins or beds....

By Carr, Herman Axelsson, Lennart When Zostera marina was irradiated after a period of darkness, initiation of photosynthetic O2 evolution occurred in two phases. During a lag phase, lasting 4 to 5 min, photosynthesis was supported by a diffusive entry of CO2. Photosynthesis then rapidly increased to its full rate. Tris buffer, at a concentration of 50 mM, completely inhibited this increase without affecting CO2-supported photosynthesis during the lag phase. These results verify that the...
