Comments Off on This new material could efficiently turn greenhouse gases into fuel

Many scientists have been eager to explore the concept of carbon capture  – and especially the concept of transforming greenhouse gases into methanol – for several years. It’s an encouraging concept for sucking carbon emissions out of the atmosphere, slowing global warming and creating handy biofuels in the process, but so far the technologies that would accomplish this transformation haven’t been particularly efficient. But new research by the Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory  has developed a copper-based material that could make the process a realistic possibility.

Comments Off on Skyonic to Transform Carbon Emissions into Baking Soda at Texas Facility

Photo via Shutterstock Texas-based company Skyonic hopes to make carbon capture profitable by turning pollutants into a common baking ingredient. The first of Skyonic’s Skymine facilities is currently under construction at a cement factory in San Antonio, and will capture carbon dioxide and other emissions from the industrial process and convert it into sodium bicarbonate and hydrochloric acid. These products can then be sold, and the total process is expected to offset more than 300,000 tons of CO2 each year.

Comments Off on World’s First Carbon Capture and Storage Project in Basalt Begins in USA

Washington state’s Department of Ecology has just granted the permit for the world’s first pilot test of carbon capture and sequestration in continental flood basalt near a paper mill in Wallula. With the permit approved, the Wallula pilot will start injecting 1,000 tons of CO 2 into a 4,000-foot well at Wallula, Washington, by January. It will take about two weeks.

Comments Off on What’s The Latest With FutureGen, The CCS Project In The Corn?

photo via flickr The story of FutureGen, the first of its kind carbon capture and storage project, has more ups and downs than an episode of “Gossip Girl.” The project was first conceived and financed under the Bush Administration, but they dropped it before leaving office , citing costs. But the Obama Administration revived the project, promising that the test project would be the first of many CCS projects, giving coal and oil power plants a new lease on life.
