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...

More carbon dioxide is released from residential lawns than corn fields according to a new study. And much of the difference can likely be attributed to soil temperature. The data, from researchers at Elizabethtown College, suggest that urban heat islands may be working at smaller scales than previously thought. These findings provide a better understanding of the changes that occur when agricultural lands undergo development and urbanization to support growing urban populations. David...

The True Fate Of Charcoal In The World's Soils Revealed
2013-04-19 08:35:43

National Science Foundation Scientists find surprising new answers in wetlands such as the Everglades Scientists have uncovered one of nature's long-kept secrets--the true fate of charcoal in the world's soils. The ability to determine the fate of charcoal is critical to knowledge of the global carbon budget, which in turn can help understand and mitigate climate change. However, until now, researchers only had scientific guesses about what happens to charcoal once it's...

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...

Forest Soil Traps More Carbon Than Thought
2013-04-01 14:02:36

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The planting and expansion of forests not only allows for the trapping of carbon in the trees themselves, it also fosters carbon absorption in the soil where the trees are rooted. Previous studies have shown that more carbon is sequestered in forest soils that in the trees, but according to new research in“¯the“¯Soil Science Society of America Journal, newly forested lands show a marked increase in carbon...

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...
