Peter Kelemen is mapping rocks in Oman to explore their potential for storing away excess carbon dioxide from the air; he’s also the authors of a chapter on carbon mineralization for a new National Academy of Sciences report.
Tag: carbon capture and storage
Carbon capture and storage technologies are an essential tool for substantially reducing emissions of greenhouse gases to combat global warming.
David Goldberg and Peter Kelemen discuss carbon capture and storage, and how it can make the energy sector, and society, more resilient to climate change.
Lamont scientists have developed ways to relatively quickly turn carbon dioxide captured from power plants to a solid for long-term storage.
In a recently published study, scientists demonstrated that two years after injecting CO2 underground at a pilot test site in Iceland, almost all of it has been converted into minerals.
Scientists working at the power plant demonstrated how CO2 emissions pumped into the earth could be chemically changed to a solid within months.
Iceland has seen fast-rising temperatures since the 1970s, and glaciers–a big source of runoff for hydropower–are visibly receding.
