LONDON, Oct 19 (Reuters) - More than 190 countries committed in 2015 to limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels in an effort to stave off the worst effects of climate change such as drought, flooding and loss of species. Scientists say bringing global carbon dioxide (CO2)...
Coldplay's Music of the Spheres world tour is set to take place as a net-zero carbon event. The band released a sustainability plan that includes direct-air carbon capture technology. Climeworks developed the sustainable technology to help the British band achieve its environmental initiatives. The band released a detailed list of...
Scotland has missed out on UK government backing to develop its first carbon capture and storage facility. It had been hoped the Acorn Project at St Fergus in Aberdeenshire could be ready by the middle of the decade. The project has been designed to take and store carbon dioxide in...
East Coast Cluster and HyNet North West chosen for scheme aimed at cutting 20-30m tonnes of CO2 a year
Engineers from UNSW have helped discover a cheap new way to capture and convert CO2 greenhouse emissions using liquid metal. The process can be done at room temperature and uses liquid gallium to convert the carbon dioxide into oxygen and a high-value solid carbon product that can later be used in batteries, or in construction, or aircraft manufacturing.

The UK government has selected two clusters, led by energy majors, to receive the funding and develop their proposed carbon capture usage and storage projects starting from 2025. Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage, or CCUS, will be essential to meeting UK’s net-zero ambitions. The UK Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan...
The UK has committed to an ambitious plan to phase out fossil fuels over the next 30 years and the Government’s net zero strategy is expected to provide the blueprint for how we will travel, heat our homes and run our economy in the future. The Government will be hoping...
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 19, 2021) — The University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) received $1.3 million from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (DOE-NETL) to develop technology that will capture carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere. Partnering with CAER on the project will be...
Approximately $20 million was awarded to four regional carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) projects by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) last week to reduce CO2 emissions from industrial sources and reach net-zero emissions by 2050. The award was split into four equal parts, divided among university-led partnerships with...
Talos Energy Inc. entered into a long-term strategic alliance with TechnipFMC to develop and deliver technical and commercial solutions to carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects along the U.S. Gulf Coast, the companies said in a joint release on Oct. 18. “We are excited to announce this strategic alliance with...
The Humber Region is the UK’s largest industrial cluster by CO2 emissions, generating 12.4MT annually. The Humber Zero project aims to remove 8MT a year by 2030. To do this, Humber Zero will integrate carbon capture and storage technology to units at Phillips 66 Humber Refinery and VPI Immingham combined heat and power plant. This will include integrating specialist technologies, including absorption techniques to capture and recover the CO2, into the existing processing units and plants.
In a state known for its strong winds, Wyoming’s elected officials sure don’t seem to have learned how to gauge how hard or which direction the winds are blowing. Opinion — At least where energy markets are concerned, they would rather bury their heads in the coal than acknowledge that the nation is rapidly moving away from the expensive and highly polluting coal-powered electricity currently produced in Wyoming toward lower-cost clean renewable energy.
Net Zero Strategy sets out how the UK will deliver on its commitment to reach net zero emissions by 2050. outlines measures to transition to a green and sustainable future, helping businesses and consumers to move to clean power, supporting hundreds of thousands of well-paid jobs and leveraging up to £90 billion of private investment by 2030.
‘Catastrophic blow’: Tory ministers under fire as north-east misses out on carbon capture cash again
The UK Government is under fire after dealing another “bitterly disappointing” blow to the north-east’s bid to host a pioneering clean energy scheme. SNP politicians accused Conservative ministers of delivering “let down after let down” to Scotland’s hopes of leading the way in the development of carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technology.
A SCOTLAND Office minister has welcomed as “good news” his government’s decision to overlook a major carbon capture project in Aberdeenshire. The Acorn Project, due to be in St Fergus in Aberdeenshire, is now likely to come in the second phase of the UK’s carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) cluster sequencing process after the first facility is set to be built on the Humber and around Liverpool.
Cement is the main binder that holds pebbles and stones in concrete together. It is mainly composed of clinker, a residue produced by firing clay and limestone in a kiln. When heated, CO2 is produced. To make one ton of cement, the process of firing at 1,400 degrees Celsius produces...
