The U.S. Department of Energy and Natural Resources Canada announced today a total of $5.2 million has been committed by the two governments to bring a benchmark carbon dioxide injection project to successful conclusion in 2011.
Three clean energy technology projects resulting from a 2009 agreement between the United States and China are kicking off a new collaborative research effort that will focus on managing carbon dioxide emissions and reducing the environmental impact of energy production.
Ten projects aimed at developing advanced technologies for capturing carbon dioxide from coal combustion have been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy under its Innovations for Existing Plants Program.
Research to help find ways of converting into useful products CO2 captured from emissions of power plants and industrial facilities will be conducted by six projects announced today by the U.S. Department of Energy.
A field test conducted by a U.S. Department of Energy team of regional partners has demonstrated that using carbon dioxide in an enhanced oil recovery method dubbed "huff-and-puff" can help assess the carbon sequestration potential of geologic formations while tapping America's valuable oil resources.
The U.S. Department of Energy has signed a cooperative agreement with NRG Energy Inc. for the Parish Post-Combustion CO2 Capture and Sequestration Project to design, construct, and operate a system that will capture and store approximately 400,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year.
The ability to detect and track the movement of carbon dioxide in underground geologic storage reservoirs -- an important component of carbon capture and storage technology -- has been successfully demonstrated at a U.S. Department of Energy New Mexico test site.
