CO2 Capture Technology That May Surprise You (Video)

CO2 Capture Technology That May Surprise You

This video focuses on CO2 capture technology that may surprise you Carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere is the leading long-term cause of climate change. The atmospheric concentration of this greenhouse gas has increased by 48 per cent since humans started burning fossil fuels. Yet, even today, it makes up only about 0.04 per cent […]

Bioenergy With Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)

Bioenergy With Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)

This video explains what bioenergy with carbon capture and storage is and how it works Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) is a way to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. It is considered by some to be a negative emissions technology and a necessary climate change solution. Advocates commend its potential for […]

Global Warming Is a Hoax: Conspiracy or Imminent Climate Change Disaster?

Global warming hoax

Some people believe global warming is a hoax; a conspiracy cooked up by politicians to control our lives. Are they right? Or, are we on the edge of an imminent climate change disaster? Is global warming a conspiracy or imminent climate change disaster? Here’s a simple way to look at the issue. Every year, our […]

Pre-Combustion Carbon Capture: CO2 Capture Technologies

Pre-Combustion Carbon Capture: CO2 Capture Technologies

There is no doubt that the main cause of climate change is the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and gas. When they are burned, these fossil fuels release carbon dioxide (CO2). This gas enters the atmosphere where it traps heat and causes the planet’s temperature to increase. Global emissions have now reached […]

Carbon Storage: This is where CO2 is captured

Carbon Storage

Carbon is the basis of all life but, as carbon dioxide (CO2), it is a major problem for our climate. Yet, only a small proportion is in the air at all. Much larger carbon storage mediums are forests, soils or oceans. What is carbon storage? Carbon (“C” as a chemical element) is present everywhere around […]

Coal Carbon Capture Feasibility

coal carbon capture

For decades, debate has raged regarding the merits of removing carbon from the atmosphere in order to mitigate climate change. Groups supporting coal-fired power plants have held up carbon capture as a justification for their massive contribution to greenhouse gas emissions.1 They have also found support from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) who […]

How much does CO2 capture cost

CO2 capture cost

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is hailed as a miracle solution to combat climate change by the fossil fuel industry – a move that allows the industry to continue burning fossil fuels. The technology aims to capture emissions caused by the burning of fossil fuels before it’s released into the atmosphere. However, it is shockingly […]
