Carbon dioxide injection has begun at the world’s first fully integrated coal power and geologic storage project in southwest Alabama, with the goals of assessing integration of the technologies involved and laying the foundation for future use of CO2 for enhanced oil recovery.
The successful bench-scale test of a novel carbon dioxide capturing sorbent promises to further advance the process as a possible technological option for reducing CO2 emissions from coal-fired power plants.
As part of President Obama’s all-of-the-above approach to American energy, the Energy Department announced today the selection of eight projects to advance the development of transformational oxy-combustion technologies capable of high-efficiency, low-cost carbon dioxide capture from coal-fired power plants.
A Carnegie Mellon University professor who worked with the National Energy Technology Laboratory on research that could help meet carbon capture goals has earned a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.
The U.S. Department of Energy and the California Energy Commission are working together to advance an innovative carbon capture and storage plant simultaneously through the federal National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review and a complementary California Energy Quality Act process.
Best practices for managing wells used to store carbon dioxide in geologic formations are the focus of a publication just released by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory.
