First Carbon Capture Projects Mask a Lack of Progress | MIT Technology Review

... studies suggest, billions of tons of carbon dioxide need to be captured from hundreds of fossil-fuel power plants in the next few decadesand as soon as possible. Without large-scale carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), other measuresincluding rollouts of renewable and nuclear powerwill not avert catastrophic climate effects in the coming century and beyond (see "The Carbon Capture ...

Global Solar Thermal Electricity: IEA Still Bullish

... the last five years. The technology is diversifying, costs are dropping, and new markets have begun to open up. At the same time, greater uncertainty has begun to dog nuclear power andcarbon capture and sequestration schemes. The International Energy Agency has thus reassessed the roles of both solar energy sources and published its findings in a new Technology Roadmap (for) Solar Thermal ...

Global Warming And The Texas Surge Of New Chemical Plants | StateImpact Texas

... chemical processes at the plant would have increased the cost to build it by 25 percent and added a staggering $34 million dollars to the annual cost to run it. "The whole issue of carbon capture and storage is a pipe dream, someday it may be technically feasible, some day it may be economically feasible. It is not today," said Stephen Minick with the Texas Association of Business. When ...

MOF Slurry-Based Process May Revolutionize Carbon Capture

... Scientists from EPFL, UC Berkley and Beijing have developed a slurry-based process that can revolutionize carbon capture. The slurry, consisting of a porous powder suspended in glycol, offers the efficient large-scale implementation of a liquid while maintaining the lower costs and energy efficiency of solid carbon-capturing materials. Carbon capture is a process by which waste carbon ...

... equivalent of taking a quarter million cars off Canadian roads. Boundary Dam is the world's first Post-Combustion Coal-Fired CCS, which required a $1.4 billion retrofit to unit 3. The carbon capture process will also reduce unit 3's capacity from 139 MW down to 110 MW. As Scientific American explains: Boundary Dam also burns brown coal, the most polluting form of the most polluting fossil fuel. ...
