- Norden kan bli CO2-nøytralt innen 2050

Forskning.no: Norden kan bli CO2-nøytralt innen 2050, ifølge en ny IEA-rapport. Men da må nesten alle kjøre elbil. Les mer

WORLD’S FIRST INTEGRATED CARBON DIOXIDE/SULPHUR DIOXIDE PLANT CAPTURES CO2 USING CANSOLV TECHNOLOGY

Cansolv: In capturing the first tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2) at their joint demonstration plant at Aberthaw Power Station in the UK, Cansolv and RWE npower have successfully commenced operations at the world’s first integrated sulphur dioxide (SO2)/CO2 capture plant. Les mer

Turkey trading coal for gas in electricity

Hyrriyet Daily News: The traditional wintertime smell of burning coal across Turkey appears set to become far more prevalent as the country turns to smoke-generating, coal-burning plants in an effort to break its large dependency on natural gas. Les mer

Air Products' Phase One Carbon Capture Project Onstream in Texas

PR Newswire: Described by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) as a milestone in DOE's Industrial Carbon Capture and Storage (ICCS) program, Air Products (NYSE: APD) announced today that Phase One of its two stage carbon capture project in Port Arthur, Texas is onstream. Les mer

More solar and wind power also will increase demand for natural gas, columnist argues

Ohio.com: Generating more and more electricity from solar and wind will require natural gas-powered peaking plants as backup, argues John Miller at The Energy Collective. Les mer

Conservative policy argues for more fossil fuel and less windpower

STV News: Wind farms should be substantially cut and fossil fuels such as shale gas should be exploited, according to a review of Scottish Conservative energy policy. Les mer

Carbon capture and storage: The devil lies in the details

Gulfnews.com: For some time we have been led to believe that carbon capture and storage or sequestration (CCS) is a world saviour in the abatement of climate change. Lately, the enthusiasm was softened due to the multitude of problems that must be overcome for CCS to play its expected role. Les mer

Brussels steers towards ‘resolute’ new CCS targets by 2014

euractiv: Europe’s failing plans to encourage the burial of carbon dioxide emissions underground should be boosted by new laws for emissions performance standards or mandatory carbon capture and storage (CCS) certificates, according to a draft EU communication seen by EurActiv. Les mer

RWE, Shell launch integrated sulfur, carbon capture plant at UK power station

hydrocarbonprocessing: RWE reported capturing the first tonne of CO2 at the joint demonstration plant. The announcement of ‘first capture’ highlights the successful commissioning of the ground-breaking regenerable carbon capture testing campaign, which will see 90% of CO2 captured and essentially all SO2 captured. Les mer

Norway confirms great potential for CO2 storage

Bellona: The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) states in a new report, released on 25 January, that significant amounts of CO2 can be stored in the Norwegian Sea. The potential for safe storage of CO2 in the Norwegian parts of the North Sea could amount to 5.5 gigatonnes. Les mer

New Set of Computational Tools and Models Expected to Help Enable Rapid Development and Deployment of Carbon Capture Technologies

US DOE: - An eagerly anticipated suite of 21 computational tools and models to help enable rapid development and deployment of new carbon capture technologies is now available from the Carbon Capture Simulation Initiative (CCSI). Les mer

New EU CCS Policy: "The most important document that the European Commission has produced on CCS for the last two years", says Frederic Hauge

Bellona: The European Commission is preparing a Communication to the EU Member States and the European Parliament on Capture and Storage of CO2 (CCS). A draft version was distributed for public consultation, where the Commission calls for far greater commitment from both governments and industry, including those providing fossil fuels. The draft Communication says regulation is necessary either through sectoral emission performance standards or mandatory CCS certificate schemes - or a mixture of both Les mer
