The fossil-fuel power sector and energy-intensive industries are major producers of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, contributing to rising global CO2 levels that have been linked to climate change. CO2 capture and storage (CCS) technology is therefore being developed for application to power plants and in CO2-intensive industries to reduce the carbon footprint of these activities, in order to mitigate the potentially harmful effects of climate change.
CO2 capture options range from post- and pre-combustion separation to advanced combustion-based options, which are applicable to both new-build power plant or as a retrofit to existing plant, and can also be adopted in other industries. CO2 storage options range from geological sequestration in deep saline aquifers and utilisation of CO2 for enhanced oil and gas recovery, to mineral carbonation and biofixation. Developments and innovations in this field are aimed at increasing the effectiveness and lowering the cost of capture, and at verifying the safety and efficacy of storage/sequestration.
Developments and innovation in carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage technology, Volumes 1 and 2, provide a comprehensive reference on the state of the art of research, development and demonstration of CCS technology in the power sector and in industry.
Volume 2 initially reviews geological sequestration of CO2, from saline aquifer sequestration to oil and gas reservoir and coal bed storage, including coverage of reservoir sealing, and monitoring and modelling techniques used to verify geological sequestration of CO2. Terrestrial and ocean sequestration are also reviewed, along with the environmental impact and performance assessments for these routes. The final section reviews advanced concepts for CO2 storage and utilisation, such as industrial utilisation, biofixation, mineral carbonation and photocatalytic reduction.
With its distinguished international team of contributors, Developments and innovation in carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage technology, Volumes 1 and 2, will be a standard reference for professionals in the power sector and related industries, as well as to academics and researchers in this important field.
Professor M. Mercedes Maroto-Valer is Director of the Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Storage (CICCS), University of Nottingham, UK, and is noted for her research into energy and environmental technologies, with particular emphasis on carbon management.
