Leaders - CCUS in the U.S.
 
Nuts and bolts of Section 45Q Tax Credits
CCUS projects in the United States will increase due to changes in a powerful tax
incentive. By Keith Tracy, President, Cornerpost CO2 LLC
 
CO2 Capture Going BIG
A new class of sorbents called bis-iminoguanidines (BIGs) have been developed at Oak
Ridge National Laboratory which are environmentally friendly and have lower energy
requirements compared to traditional carbon capture technologies
 
Pi-CO2 Cost-Efficient Aqueous Carbon Capture
For decades, the limiting condition to CO2 capture has been the ‘Cost of Capture’.
Over the past 10 years, Partnering in Innovation Inc., Savanah River National
Laboratory, and others have developed a low risk system that directly addresses this,
and other, limitations
 
ROTA-CAP rotating bed carbon capture process offers cost savings
The new ROTA-CAP process could change the landscape in carbon capture, initial
estimates suggest it could slash carbon capture costs to $30 per tonne
 
Ten years of technology development at the National Carbon Capture Center
The National Carbon Capture Center, a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-sponsored
research user facility managed and operated by Southern Company, has announced a
significant milestone: 10 years of technology development
 
U.S. 45Q tax credit could have major impact on CO2 emissions
The Clean Air Task Force study found that nearly 49 million metric tonnes of CO2
could be captured and stored annually by 2030 through CCS on U.S. coal- and gasfired
power plants
 
Membranes to capture CO2 at coal-fired power plants
A computational modelling method may help to fast-track the identification and
design of new carbon capture and storage materials
 
Projects and policy
 
UK’s Acorn project now ready for FEED
Having completed a round of initial study, the UK’s “Acorn” carbon capture and
storage project, based at St Fergus, North of Peterhead, is now ready for FEED
 
Drax BECCS pilot project underway
The first BECCS pilot project of its kind in the world at Drax Power Station in the UK
has started capturing carbon dioxide
 
Introducing CO2RE: The world’s first global CCS intelligence database
The launch of the CO2RE CCS Intelligence Database represents a significant evolution of the Global
CCS Institute’s vast CCS knowledge and data repository
 
Capture and utilisation
 
Melbourne University scientists turn carbon dioxide back into coal
The research team led by RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, have developed a
new technique that can efficiently convert CO2 from a gas into solid particles of carbon
 
New powder could help cut CO2 emissions
Scientists at the University of Waterloo have created a powder that could capture
carbon dioxide (CO2) from factories and power plants
 
“Flipped” Metal Oxide Cage can sort CO2 from CO
A Japanese research team led by Kanazawa University studied using a bowl of
Vanadium to separate carbon dioxide from carbon monoxide
 
Transport and storage
 
Varied CO2 injection rates can boost CO2 storage effectiveness
Varying the rate at which carbon dioxide is injected into geological storage sites can
enhance not just their efficiency but also their ability to store the greenhouse gas
securely, according to a new study from the University of Edinburgh
