Carbon Capture and Storage is a mitigation technology essential in tackling global climate change and ensuring a secure energy supply.
On 03 April 2012, Energy and Climate Change Secretary Edward Davey launched a new competition for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), a key technology in the Government’s drive to ensure our future energy security and reduce emissions.
A new study by researchers at MIT shows that there is enough capacity in deep saline aquifers in the United States to store at least a century’s worth of carbon dioxide emissions from the nation’s coal-fired powerplants. Though questions remain about the economics of systems to capture and store such gases, this study addresses a major issue that has overshadowed such proposal
It’s been said that the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is steadily increasing. Being a greenhouse gas, this could spell a lot of trouble for the planet as it could contribute to more global warming.
Spotlight: Issues Remain for Carbon Capture, According to Council Member...
"Several important issues must be resolved," Benson said at a symposium held at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) on February 17. "One is the high cost of capturing CO2. The other is an overall lack of confidence in the capacity, safety, and permanence of sequestration in deep geological formations."

When the researchers pumped CO2 into the tanks where the modified bacteria were living, even more CaCO3 solidified than in tanks with unmodified bacteria. Better yet, more of it was in the crystalline calcite form, which is more stable—and likely to sequester CO2 over geological time—than amorphous CaCO3.
LONDON (Reuters) - Scotland plans to fit all its existing coal-fired power plants with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology by 2025 and require new coal stations to be fully equipped with CCS from the turn of the decade, the Scottish...
There was a strong feeling of déjà vu yesterday as the Government made the well-flagged announcement that it was re-starting its £1bn competition to develop a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project on a commercial scale.
By breaking up rock formations deep underground, drilling companies can gain access to natural gas once thought unrecoverable. But drilling zones overlap significantly with places suitable for storing carbon dioxide below the surface, according to a new study.
With the departure of green champion Chris Huhne, and Ed Davey still coming to terms with his new brief as energy secretary, it would be unfortunate if this was a move by the coalition to row back still further on green energy investment
"The work showed that commercial scale CCS is technically feasible and for the first time made complete engineering designs for the end-to-end chain of capture, transport and storage freely available for the world to see."
