PLAINFIELD, Ind., July 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) has filed testimony with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission describing a proposed carbon dioxide storage project in southwest Indiana. (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20040414/DUKEENERGYLOGO) The company is proposing to study permanent underground storage of a portion of the carbon dioxide emissions from its Edwardsport coal gasification power plant under construction. Carbon dioxide is considered...

U.S. Department of Energy scientists say they've started tracking carbon dioxide movement nearly 2 miles underground at the Cranfield, Miss., oilfield. "This research effort will provide valuable insight into both the requirements of the instrumentation necessary to ensure the safe storage of CO2 underground, and the geological formations that are expected to permanently store greenhouse gas in the Southeast United States," the Energy Department said in a statement. The project began July...

By Subhro Niyogi Kolkata: It's a path-breaking project that the state science and technology department has on its hands. A team comprising scientists and industry experts is trying to tap carbon dioxide emitted from power plants and use it to extract coal-bed methane from abandoned coal mines. The methane, in turn, can fuel gasbased power plants. "We have prepared a pilot project for carbon sequestering at the new 300-MW unit of DPL. The carbon dioxide will be collected from flu gas,...

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- EESTECH Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: EESH) , and China's Datong Coal Mine Group, based in Shanxi Province, have signed an exclusive agreement to undertake a feasibility and project development program that will use methane and waste coal to supply power for the mining operations. The program, which will be based on EESTECH's Hybrid Coalmine Gas Technology (HCGT), uses methane and waste coal to produce clean energy. The advantage of this process is that it...

The U.S. Department of Energy says it's started injecting carbon dioxide into a large New Mexican coal bed while simultaneously recovering natural gas. The Energy Department said it plans to inject up to 35,000 tons of carbon dioxide during a six-month demonstration at the San Juan Basin near Navajo City, N.M. Unlike other enhanced coal bed methane recovery projects, this demonstration will develop ways to maximize permanent storage of the injected CO2, a process called geologic carbon...

By Jake Stump, Charleston Daily Mail, W.Va. Jul. 31--CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Clean coal and carbon capture are two key elements to cracking the ongoing energy crisis, say members of West Virginia's congressional delegation. Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller and Republican Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito sponsored separate pieces of legislation this week promoting West Virginia coal and conversion research. Rockefeller introduced the Future Fuels Act, a sweeping measure that would...

"Clean coal" is an oxymoron. There is no way to burn coal that doesn't produce hundreds of tons of pollution, including massive amounts of carbon dioxide, which is a major contributor to global warming. Rep. Rick Boucher understands that, even if the coalfield representative and industry supporter may not like to admit it. But he also understands that there is no ready substitute for coal, an abundant, relatively cheap source of energy for the nation. He thinks the answer is carbon...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Five million tons of carbon dioxide, a gas linked to global warming, was successfully stored in a Canadian oilfield while doubling the field's crude oil recovery rate, the U.S. Energy Department said on Tuesday. The promising technology in the multi-national project could be used to capture and store carbon dioxide in geologic formations, U.S. officials said. "By applying this technique to the oil fields of Western Canada, we would see billions of additional...

WASHINGTON - A technology for capturing carbon dioxide in oil fields could have the same impact on the environment as removing millions of cars from roads, U.S. energy officials said on Tuesday. Five million tons of Co2, a gas linked to global warming, was successfully stored in a Canadian oilfield while doubling the field's crude oil recovery rate, the Energy Department said. The promising technology in the multi-national project could be used to capture and store carbon dioxide in geologic...

  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
