Latest Bio-energy with carbon capture and storage Stories

2013-07-11 12:24:53

Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) can reverse the global warming trend and push temperatures back below the global target of 2°C above pre-industrial levels, even if current policies fail and we initially overshoot this target. This is according to a new study, published today, 11 July, in IOP Publishing's journal Environmental Research Letters, which shows that ambitious temperature targets can be exceeded then reclaimed by implementing BECCS around mid-century....

GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Carbon Capture and Storage markets. The worldwide CO2 capture and storage capacity is projected to reach 56 million tonnes by 2018, driven by increasing pressure to control emissions of greenhouse gasses, political will to achieve emission targets, and growing government support for CCS projects. San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 24, 2013 GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Carbon Capture and Storage...

According to the analysis, carbon dioxide removal could be used under certain requirements to alleviate the most costly components of mitigation, but it would not replace the bulk of actual emissions reductions. "Carbon dioxide removal from the atmosphere allows to separate emissions control from the time and location of the actual emissions. This flexibility can be important for climate protection," says lead-author Elmar Kriegler. "You don't have to prevent emissions in every factory or...

REGINA, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Only two per cent of Canadians believe climate change is not occurring, a new important survey released today by IPAC-CO2 Research Inc. concluded. The survey comes on the heels of Alberta Premier Alison Redford's recent push for a National Energy Strategy, which would address the future of Canada's oil and gas industries, and its approach to carbon management. "Our survey indicates that Canadians from coast to coast overwhelmingly believe...

Two New Views Of Carbon Sinks
2012-08-02 05:35:15

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In the last 50 years, man has quadrupled his CO2 output, primarily through the burning of fossil fuels. That is a startling and sobering concept. So far, though, Mother Nature seems to be keeping pace. In a new study released August 2, 2012, in the journal Nature, researchers from NOAA and the University of Colorado assert that Earth's carbon sinks continue to soak up roughly half of the carbon output. Carbon sinks are areas of...

Estimates capitalize on instrumental measurements of CO2 in smokestacks and pollutants in the air by satellites and surface stations Atmospheric scientists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and Nanjing University have produced the first "bottom-up" estimates of China's carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, for 2005 to 2009, and the first statistically rigorous estimates of the uncertainties surrounding China's CO2 emissions. The independent estimates, rooted in...

[ Watch the Video ] A new study by researchers at BYU, Duke and the USDA finds that soil plays an important role in controlling the planet´s atmospheric future. The researchers set out to find how intact ecosystems are responding to increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The earth´s current atmospheric carbon dioxide is 390 parts per million, up from 260 parts per million at the start of the industrial revolution, and will likely rise to more than 500 parts per...

It's a message no one wants to hear: To slow down global warming, we'll either have to put the brakes on economic growth or transform the way the world's economies work. That's the implication of an innovative University of Michigan study examining the evolution of atmospheric CO2, the most likely cause of global climate change. The study, conducted by José Tapia Granados and Edward Ionides of U-M and Óscar Carpintero of the University of Valladolid in Spain,...
