Gassnova SF sender hver uke ut et eget nyhetsbrev der vi trekker fram de mest sentrale nyhetene innenfor CO2-håndtering i løpet av uken.

Oppfordrer EU til å investere 2,5 mrd euro i infrastruktur for CO2-transport
Gassnova: Hvis ikke EU umiddelbart investerer i infrastruktur for transport av CO2, vil ikke unionen nå sine klimamål, advarer ZEP i en rapport. Les mer

CO2 - en verdifull råvare?
geoforskning.no: Bruk av CO2 til økt oljeutvinning vil gjøre klimagassen mer etterspurt i årene som kommer, mener Arne Graue, professor ved Universitetet i Bergen. Les mer

Polsk-norsk CCS-program
Forskningsrådet: 10 millioner euro vil om kort tid bli lyst ut til forskningsprosjekter innenfor temaet karbonfangst- og lagring (CCS). Les mer

– Stoltenbergs månelanding er en bommert
ABC Nyheter: - Ideen om å utvikle teknologi for fangst av CO2 i Norge, var ikke gjennomtenkt. Vi har på langt nær nok CO2 her i landet til å gjøre det kommersielt interessant. Les mer

CCSA weekly newsletters
CCSA: • Chair of Korean Carbon Capture Research Centre visits Heriot-Watt
• DECC scraps clawback clause for renewables contracts Les mer

Why carbon capture is key
HazardEx: Since the 1997 Kyoto agreement, world CO² emissions have risen by 40% and are now over 400 parts per million. In Europe, windfarms, carbon taxes and carbon trading systems have all been ineffective at best and counter-productive at worst. The cost of subsidising these initiatives has boosted energy prices to a level where many companies have relocated manufacturing to other parts of the world where factories are far more carbon-intensive.

Energy Secretary Moniz talks fossil fuels, carbon capture
Electric Light and Power: In a July 29 address, Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz said coal and other fossil fuels would remain a vital part of the energy portfolio of the U.S. for many years to come. Les mer

Nordic CCS Summer School 18-23 August 2013
sintef.no: The Nordic CCS Summer School is a one-week intensive course in CO2 capture, transport and storage. Les mer

Germany's Linde to build big Saudi carbon capture plant
Climate Spectator: Saudi Basic Industries Corp has hired Germany's Linde Group to build the world's largest plant for capturing and using climate-warming carbon dioxide, the Saudi petrochemical giant said on Wednesday. Les mer

Poland on collision course with Brussels over ‘illegal’ coal plant
Euractiv: EXCLUSIVE / Euro MPs and environmentalists are urging the European Commission to take rapid action to prevent Poland from building two huge new 900MW units at a coal plant, in violation of EU laws on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). Les mer

R&D Projects Target Cheaper Carbon Capture, Use, and Storage
Powermag: In order to burn abundant supplies of coal globally while minimizing carbon dioxide emissions, cheaper methods of capturing, using, and storing greenhouse gas emissions from power plants are needed. A new federal agency is on the leading edge of identifying and supporting promising technologies. Les mer

Welsh ‘CSS-adaptable’ CCGT in planning phase
Gas to power journal: A property owners' joint venture, Wrexham Power Ltd, confirmed plans to spend about £800 million to build Wrexham Energy Centre, a 1,200MW gas-fired power plant, located south of Liverpool in northern Wales. The plant will be adaptable for future Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology which is not yet widely used on gas-fired plants. Les mer

Catching carbon
news24: If there's too much CO2 in the atmosphere, why don't we just build machines to remove some of it before the planetary climate goes into a tail-spin? Les mer

Alberta report recommends stronger carbon-capture rules
Globe and Mail: Stronger and more specific safety and environmental rules need to be in place before carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology is brought into widespread use, says an Alberta government report. Les mer

http://theconversation.com/explainer-what-is-carbon-capture-and-storage-16052

The Conversation: The Energy Technologies Institute
recently reported that without carbon capture and storage (CCS), the cost of
reaching the UK’s climate change targets will double from around £30 billion
per year in 2050. So how does it work? Les

A Closer Look at the Technical and Behavioral Barriers to Action on Global Warming
New York Times: There’s been some excellent writing elsewhere of late showing why addressing the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, despite the clarity of the basic science, is so hard. Les mer

Energy Secretary Moniz leaves dirty work on coal to others
The Washington Times : If the Obama administration is indeed waging a “war on coal,” as its critics contend, then newly minted Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz aims to build a bridge between the opposing camps. Les mer

A war on coal needed
The Press: The world's poor leave a small carbon footprint but suffer most from climate change. Professor Peter Singer argues that reducing coal consumption is the key to turning things around. Les
mer

Environmental impacts of CO2 leakage
Natural Environment Research Council: It is important to consider the possible environmental effects in the unlikely event that leakage does occur. Les mer

Why CCS implies over regulation
ScienceBlogs: Inevitably, the talk turns to regulation. Les mer

- Politicians chasing the green vote distort energy prices and policies
The Yorkshire Post: As the May 2015 election nears, the Conservatives risk being saddled with the blame for a draconian tax which will begin to filter through on bills and industry costs this coming winter. The Aussies have accepted they got it wrong; it is now time for the UK to follow the lead and end
its support for this flawed tax before the voters start to feel the pinch, Tony Lodge writes. Les
