Clean coal system captures 99 percent of CO2

A new form of clean coal technology is ready for large-scale testing, following successful research trials at Ohio State University.

Sea urchin discovery could help capture CO2

The discovery that sea urchins use nickel particles to remove carbon dioxide from the sea could be the key to capturing tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Molecular sieve pulls CO2 from the air

Scientists at the University of Melbourne have developed a new way of capturing carbon dioxide that should reduce the cost of separating and storing the gas.

US has plenty of room for carbon storage, says MIT

While plenty of question marks still hang over the prospect of carbon capture and storage, MIT believes it's ruled out one: the US, it says, has enough capacity in its deep saline aquifers to store at least a century's fossil fuel emissions.

DOE funds carbon capture in Virginia

Virginia Tech researchers plan to inject some 20,000 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) into a coalbed methane field in southwest Virginia, as part of a Department of Energy project.

Carbon sequestration could be ticking time bomb, says scientist

Carbon capture and storage could be as risky and hard to manage as the storage of nuclear waste, according to a Danish scientist.

'Gene-like' crystals could capture CO2

UCLA chemists have created synthetic gene-like crystals that they say could capture heat-trapping carbon dioxide emissions.
