A primary driver of the markets for gasifiers is the need for energy in the forms of electricity and liquid fuels; roughly half of the world´s most affordable electricity is fueled by coal, which is bountiful on all inhabited continents and some islands as well. The four highest growth rate gasifier market sectors are: plasma gasifiers (the fastest expansion by far), CTL (coal-to-liquids), petcoke/residuals, and CTE (coal-to-energy); direct reduction iron (DRI) melt gasifiers are in a...

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...

Rice Team Develops More Efficient Method To Capture Carbon Dioxide
2013-03-29 17:59:35

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Using a steam byproduct from coal-fired power plants, researchers from Rice University have developed an experimental way to optimize carbon dioxide emissions. If the scientists are able to refine their methods, it could make current CO2 capturing technology more efficient and reduce power plant costs. "This is just the first step in our effort to better engineer a process for capturing CO2 from flue gas at power plants," said...


Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
