CO2 utilization gets another boost from DOE worth $106M

By / July 23, 2010

Late yesterday, the DOE announced that it is investing another $106 million in six projects to demonstrate the feasibility of employing CO2 in a useful, productive way. This announcement comes on the heels of a somewhat similar announcement of CO2 utilization funding made July 7. There are two major differences, however, between these announcements. The…

CO2 sequestration leaps forward with new basalt study

By / November 18, 2008

Federal scientists working at PNNL today unveiled results of research that appear to show that carbon dioxide can be permanently stored in deep underground basalt formations with little or no threats to safety. A PNNL news release states that facility staff “have discovered key factors that show water-saturated liquid CO2, under conditions mimicking deep geologic…
