Proyecto pionero que permitirá reutilizar el CO2 emitido en procesos industriales

Carburos Metálicos, empresa gasista líder en la producción y utilización de CO2 a nivel industrial, ha presentado este mediodía un pionero proyecto sostenible en colaboración con la empresa Vidrieras Canarias. La iniciativa es pionera en el mundo: nunca antes se había reutilizado el CO2 sobrante de una planta vidriera para su posterior acondicionamiento y utilización industrial. El proyecto representa una mejora importante en sostenibilidad, ya […]

Ceramic Foam Cleans Up Exhaust GasesCeramic Foam Cleans Up Exhaust Gases

The introduction next year of the Euro 6 exhaust-gas standard means that catalytic converters will become more expensive, above all for diesel vehicles. Empa is working on a catalytic substrate made of ceramic foam which, because of its structure, is more efficient and therefore more economic. Not only that — it also requires less noble metal coating. The irregular structure of the ceramic foam substrate […]

5th Carbon Capture & Storage5th Carbon Capture & Storage

5th Carbon Capture & Storage Summit will take place in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, arguably the European centre for CCS. In fact, a limited number of conference attendees will receive the unique opportunity to attend a site visit to the CATO pilot during the afternoon of Tuesday 14th May 2013. Bringing together 60-80 of the industry’s leading experts and executives from across the entire value chain (power production & energy intensive industry, […]

Advances in CO2 capture technology: A patent reviewAdvances in CO2 capture technology: A patent review

Authors: Li, BY; Duan, YH; Luebke, D; Morreale, B Source: Applied Energy , 102, 1439-1447 , 2013 Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are believed to be a major contributor to global warming. As a consequence, large anthropogenic CO2 sources worldwide will eventually be required to implement CO2 capture and storage technologies to control CO2 emissions. In order to guide the establishment of policies for CO2 removal, we reviewed the current […]

Preparation and characterization of lotus ceramics with different pore sizes and their implication for the generation of microbubbles for CO2 sequestration applicationsPreparation and characterization of lotus ceramics with different pore sizes and their implication for the generation of microbubbles for CO2 sequestration applications

Int. , 39 (2), 1443-1449 , 2013 Four kinds of porous mullite ceramics, named lotus ceramics because of the similarity of their microstructure with lotus roots, were prepared by an extrusion method using rayon fibers of four different diameters (8.1, 9.6, 16.8 and 37.6 µm) as the pore formers. The physicochemical properties […]

Patentan un nuevo material que convierte el CO2 en hidrocarburosPatentan un nuevo material que convierte el CO2 en hidrocarburos

Un grupo de investigadores de la Universidad de Granada ha desarrollado un nuevo material, a base de carbón dopado, que permite producir energía a bajo coste y reducir las emisiones de CO2 a la atmósfera. Se trata de un gel, recién patentado, que permite convertir el CO2 de nuevo en hidrocarburos, mediante una transformación electro-catalítica, ahorrando una gran cantidad de tiempo y dinero.

A Review of CO2 Capture by Absorption and AdsorptionA Review of CO2 Capture by Absorption and Adsorption

Authors: Cheng-Hsiu Yu, Chih-Hung Huang, Chung-Sung Tan Source: Aerosol and Air Quality Research, 12: 745–769, 2012 Global warming resulting from the emission of greenhouse gases, especially CO2, has become a widespread concern in the recent years. Though various CO2 capture technologies have been proposed, chemical absorption and adsorption are currently believed to be the most suitable ones for post-combustion power plants. The operation of the chemical absorption […]

Scientific discovery offers ‘green’ solution in fight against greenhouse gasesScientific discovery offers ‘green’ solution in fight against greenhouse gases

A low-cost new material that could lead to innovative technologies to tackle global warming has been discovered by scientists at The University of Nottingham. The porous material, named NOTT-300, has the potential to reduce fossil fuel emissions through the cheaper and more efficient capture of polluting gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and sulphur dioxide (SO2). The research, published in the scientific journal Nature Chemistry, demonstrates […]

El ITC desarrolla un proyecto para integrar la vegetación en fachadas

En línea con la creciente necesidad de convertir las ciudades en espacios más verdes y seguros en términos medioambientales, el Instituto de Tecnología Cerámica (ITC) -a través de su área de Arquitectura y Diseño- trabaja en el proyecto “Forest” con el que se pretende integrar elementos vegetales en fachadas de edificios, promoviendo así el que la naturaleza ocupe un lugar destacado en el urbanismo actual. […]
