US Leads in Carbon Capture Projects Worldwide

North America is the global leader in developing and deploying carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS), with seven of the world’s 12 operational large-scale integrated projects located in the US and one in Canada, according to a study by the Global CCS Institute. These … Read more »

CO2 Capturing Sorbent Efficiency ‘As High As 95%,’ DOE Says

Advanced Technology Materials Inc.’s CO2 capturing sorbent has shown a capture efficiency as high as 95 percent in a DOE-sponsored test. A typical 500 MW coal-fired power plant emits 2 million to 3 million tons of CO2 per year, so the successful bench-scale test bodes well for the sorbent’s use … Read more »
