Carbon Capture Monitoring With Cosmic Rays
2013-09-15 04:27:27

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers from Durham University in the UK are looking towards the stars for a method to reduce costs associated with carbon capture and storage (CCS) – a process that could potentially mitigate contribution of fossil fuel emissions to global warming and ocean acidification. According to BBC News science reporter Simon Redfern, CCS involves capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from fuel as it is burned at a power station. That CO2...

The Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada has invited Cap-Op Energy to present at two events in the coming months. On October 24 and November 20 company representatives will be at the Calgary Petroleum Club speaking about their work in carbon offsets and demonstrating the DEEPP. Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) August 27, 2013 Cap-Op Energy has been invited by the Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada (PTAC) to present at and sponsor two events this fall. The presentations will take place on...

Extreme Weather Adds To Warming
2013-08-15 05:05:21

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Extreme weather and climate events such as heavy precipitation, violent storms, heat waves and lengthy droughts cause terrestrial ecosystems to absorb approximately 11 billion tons less carbon dioxide each year, according to new research appearing in the latest edition of the journal Nature. That is equivalent to approximately one-third of global CO2 emissions each year, according to an international team of researchers led by...

By Fall 2013, PCOR and IOGCC will publish its latest report that focuses on liability issues related to the storage of carbon in geologic formations that should be managed by states and provinces. Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) August 14, 2013 The Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission’s (IOGCC) Carbon Geologic Storage (CGS) Task Force recently met in Denver, Colorado to begin finalizing work that began in July 2012 that focuses on liability issues related to the storage of carbon in...

Could Planting Trees In The Desert Take The Edge Off Climate Change?
2013-07-31 12:51:58

European Geosciences Union As the world starts feeling the effects of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide and consequent global temperature rise, researchers are looking for a Plan B to mitigate climate change. A group of German scientists has now come up with an environmentally friendly method that they say could do just that. The technique, dubbed carbon farming, consists in planting trees in arid regions on a large scale to capture CO2. They publish their study today in Earth System...

Carbon capture and storage has been heralded as a new technology for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In an effort to help slow climate change, human-produced carbon dioxide (CO2) is captured at point-source emitters like power stations and sequestered in underground rocks. In porous rocks like sandstone, the CO2 is trapped in tiny spaces or pores, which act like a sponge and soak up the injected fluid. In 2000, one of the first commercial examples of this technology was conducted in...
