IBB documentary makes powerful case for carbon capture

A NEW IBB-PRODUCED video documentary “CCS: Bridge to a Cleaner Energy Future,” breaks ground in our quest to bring carbon capture and storage into mainstream conversation and to promote its development and deployment. The video and its companion website (www.cleanerfutureccs.org) offer a much-needed platform for viewers to learn about CCS and advocate for it around the world.

Al Gore Missed the Memo: There’s Nothing Nonsensical about Carbon Capture

In an interview with Axios’s Amy Harder during COP24, Al Gore suggested that carbon capture and storage (CCS) was “nonsense”. The former Vice President has dedicated an admirable amount of his life and influence to galvanizing global climate action, so we’re willing to give him the benefit of the doubt—maybe he meant to say something more reasonable and just misspoke.

Carbon capture and storage gets £20m 'sensible reboot'

The UK wants to build its first project to capture and store carbon emissions from industry within the next decade, as part of a rebooted push by ministers to support the technology.

The government scrapped a £1bn carbon capture and storage (CCS) competition in 2015, with the then-chancellor George Osborne saying it was too costly. Earlier efforts had also collapsed.

Climate change: Where we are in seven charts and what you can do to help

Representatives from nearly 200 countries are gathering in Poland for talks on climate change - aimed at breathing new life into the Paris Agreement.

The UN has warned the 2015 Paris accord's goal of limiting global warming to "well below 2C above pre-industrial levels" is in danger because major economies, including the US and the EU, are falling short of their pledges.

New Lithium-Based Battery Design Makes Use of Greenhouse Gas

New lithium-based battery could make use of greenhouse gas before it ever gets into the atmosphere.

A new type of battery developed by researchers at MIT could be made partly from carbon dioxide captured from power plants. Rather than attempting to convert carbon dioxide to specialized chemicals using metal catalysts, which is currently highly challenging, this battery could continuously convert carbon dioxide into a solid mineral carbonate as it discharges.

DOE launches initiative to harvest rare earth elements from coal ash

The Department of Energy Fossil Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) is launching an initiative to harvest rare earth elements (REEs) from coal ash.

Rare earth elements have significant value as they are used in high-technology products such as catalysts, cell phones, hard drives, hybrid engines, lasers, magnets, medical devices, televisions, among others.
