Latest Carbon sink Stories
Because they can remove carbon dioxide from the flue gases of coal-burning facilities such as power plants, solid materials containing amines are being extensively studied as part of potential CO2 sequestration programs designed to reduce the impact of the greenhouse gas.
With carbon dioxide in the atmosphere approaching alarming levels, even halting emissions altogether may not be enough to avert catastrophic climate change.
As carbon dioxide continues to burgeon in the atmosphere causing the Earth's climate to warm, scientists are trying to find ways to remove the excess gas from the atmosphere and store it where it can cause no trouble.
Scientists have developed a way to detect and track carbon dioxide deep underground, giving the government an important tool that may help people find a way to keep carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from polluting the atmosphere.
AUSTIN, Texas, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Skyonic Corporation today announced it has been granted a U.S.
Jeffrey Longâ€™s lab will soon host a round-the-clock, robotically choreographed hunt for carbon-hungry materials.
Reports on Risk Assessment, Economic Viability Fulfill Agency's Act 129 Requirements HARRISBURG, Pa., May 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources today posted two reports online that conclude that with the appropriate changes in laws, Pennsylvania's geology could store carbon dioxide in a cost-competitive and manageable way.
AUSTIN, Texas, April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Skyonic Corporation today announced it started operation of its carbon mineralization demonstration facility at Capitol Aggregates, Ltd. in San Antonio, one of the largest cement plants in Texas.
An Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientist participated in a project to fine-tune computer models that can indicate when forest "carbon sinks" become net carbon generators instead. The results will help pinpoint the effectiveness of trees in offsetting carbon releases that contribute to higher atmospheric temperatures and global climate change.
Having a large-scale boreal forest biomass inventory would allow scientists to understand better the carbon cycle and to predict more accurately Earthâ€™s future climate.
