GROWING UP IN ENGLAND after World War II, "all the youngsters like me were obsessed with aircraft," says Rodney Allam. "I had a picture on my wall of Chuck Yeager when he broke the sound barrier in the Bell X-1, the earliest turbine-driven aircraft." Those high-powered machines were inspirational.
Derided as scientifically unsound and prohibitively expensive, carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) − the process by which carbon dioxide (CO2) is separated from industrial pollutants and converted into commercially viable products – has failed to gain serious traction since trials began 10-15 years ago.
Now however, Carbon Clean Solutions (CCSL), a London-based specialist in carbon separation technology, is set to change all that.
REGINA - SaskPower says its carbon-capture facility at a coal-fired power plant has captured 800,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide in one year.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) and Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) have launched a new 1MWth facility which aims to test an advanced process to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from coal-fired power plants.
A project which aims to capture 60,000 tonnes of carbon emissions from a coal-fired power station has been launched in India.
The Department of Energy (DOE) today announced that a DOE-funded project on second-generation carbon dioxide (CO2) solvent technology will begin testing at the Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) in western Norway. The DOE and the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy have a bilateral Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) covering fossil energy-related research to leverage each countries’ investments in carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).
